Since May I’ve awakened to the early morning sound of lobster boats leaving the harbor, heading out to Penobscot Bay where lobstermen will bring in the day’s haul or set and bait traps. Now morning comes later, and the boats are quiet until almost midday.
With pleasure craft all but gone from the harbor, the lobster boats are alone, mooring wherever they please and the lobster guys pay little attention to the No Wake rule as they race in and out of the harbor. Except for a few hearty souls, most will spend the winter readying for a new season when the process begins all over again.
How I love the rhythm of the harbor, and I can’t wait until spring when once again I will wake to the sound of lobster boats!
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
