    Hope the voyage is a long one.
    May there be many a summer morning when,
    with what pleasure, what joy,
    you come into harbors seen for the first time...

    Can you see the face of the ninja in the carapace?
    I don't care to know what the tough do when the going gets tough.

    I am interested in what the enlightened do.

    I've seen a bright blue one, up close... it was shown to me by a guy who runs the lobster co-op in Burnt Coat Harbor, ME. We had dinghied over there, from our mooring, to buy lobsters for dinner, and the blue one had just been caught and brought in.

    They were planning to give it to some aquarium.

    Blue lobsters are found off the northern coast of France and are considered even better than Maine (I mean NS) lobsters. It's hard to imagine better tasting lobsters than are found off the northern coasts of our continent, but that's what I'm told.

    I'll take any one of them to put in a pot but I think the half and half guy should be spared.
    One of the most enduring qualities of an old wooden boat is the smell it imparts to your clothing.

    I’ve had langoustine and “labstah”. I think North American lobster is tastier.

    Lets not make lobster color a racial issue, all northern lobsters taste the same, only difference is soft shell, less meat, more tender, hard shell more meat less tender.
