It was wonderful to have time to meet my blogging friend Marie and her husband, again. Marie suggested French River, one of her favourite spots on the island, especially in the lobster season. I can now fully understand why. French River is one of many tiny, colourful harbours on the island for fishing fleets.
In early May, a date is set for all the lobster boats to set their traps for the first, 2 month lobster season. At sunrise, on this date, their families line the shoreline to wish them a safe and successful season. [The second season is from August to October.]
You might like to learn more about 'the setting' by reading Marie's blog.
This was our first glimpse of French River.
I would love to read your comment.
