Not being in the water for months at a time after having been spoiled for so much of the year is a problem for me.  We really enjoy lobster hunting so when I found this web cam that is attached to a lobster pot up in Nova Scotia I thought it would be interesting to check in on once in a while.  The link leads to a live feed web cam so it only works during daylight hours up in Nova Scotia.  Live lobster trap cam here

I've been checking the cam for about 2 months now and this morning there was finally a lobster inside it; 2 actually.  It turned out to be the one of the saddest things ever.  I thought they climbed into the pot and sat there happily eating the bait until the lobsterman came along and harvested them.  This mornings lobster were anything but complacent.  They were literally bouncing off the walls as they searched relentlessly back and forth for the way out of the trap.

I find myself rooting for the lobsters that are on the outside of the trap to NOT find the door.  I might be going a bit buggy.  I need to get back into the water and kill something.

I laughed like crazy when I read this post because we're feeling the same way. Waaayyy too much work and not enough sailing.
