Lobsters on Langosta Beach

Playa Langosta means lobster beach in Spanish. This photo shows why. These lobsters were caught by some local fishermen. They took the lobsters out of their bucket and laid them on the sand so I could take a photo of them.

I am showing this photo because my wife is away in Nova Scotia right now with some friends on a vacation that I could not go on because I had some things at work I had to do. Julie said she was going to be having a lobster dinner tonight, so here is a photo to illustrate her dinner about 5,000 miles away.

In the future I will show a series of photos of the fishermen casting their nets at the entrance to the Langosta estuary. But first, I will begin a series tomorrow showing life on a nearby local ranch.

We are showing photos of the village of Cernobbi on the shores of Lake Como, Italy, this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

I don't recall having ever eaten lobster. Some photos I've seen have made them look good. But these do not tempt my palate. Maybe I'll check with your wife in Nova Scotia! :-)

I'm sure that these animals will make a delightful meal. Can't imagine that Lowell has never had a lobster meal. He should remedy that immediately and I will hop over to his blog to tell him!

Looking forward to your ranch photos.

I don't mind lobster if it's served without any of it's outer bits and pieces, just the soft meaty part, preferably with a tasty dressing, the claws and feelers freak me out!! I could never pick one fresh out of a tank, that's too horrible..
btw Dave the picture I was going to put up today was more of a follow on of the watery theme, but I got a little mixed up as you'll see tomorrow. Hope you have a fab weekend.

I'm sure Julie will enjoy her lobster dinner in Nova Scotia, that is what they are known for.

Those are some big lobsters!!

Jilly said...

Fabulous shot but what are those ominous holes in the top of two heads? Is that how they are killed?

YUMMY!!

Now why have we got 2 different types of lobstery animals?

We have langoustes (similar to the Spanish) and homard (what is called lobster in England). Not the same beast and not the same taste...

Big ugly bugs that I won't eat! ;)
