Lobster, again

John gives us another lobster fresh from his pot

‘Like another lobster, Piers?’ asked John as he extracted his latest catch from the lobster pot he keeps in the marina near to Play d’eau. Did I hesitate?

John, who lives on his sailing boat, White Magic, keeps his pot tethered to the pontoon and although only 6′ from the granite side of this former quarry, it’s a sheer 85′ straight down to the bottom.

So this is our second lobster from John in two days. What a life!

Can you think of a caption for the photo?
