Anyone who knows me knows that the last week in July is always reserved for the opening of lobster season in the Florida Keys! Since I can remember, my family has made this annual trek south for the ultimate catch - the Florida Spiny Lobster (no claws). At least I made friends with the Coast Guard last year (just in case we get pulled over again). On Wednesday morning, we will continue the annual ritual of waking up at 4:00 a.m. to hover over our pre-determined “spot” and wait for the sun to come up. Once we can see, we send in the divers to catch our six lobsters/person/day. It’s difficult waking up so early, but I guarantee dinner that night is worth it! See ya in the Florida Keys!
