It is hard to imagine a more beautiful place to work...setting and hauling lobster pots. Hard work, but you are your own man, or woman. Indeed, some of the lobstermen are women (most famously Linda Greenlaw, who was "the other captain" in the book, and movie, "The Perfect Storm", who lives on another island, Isle au Haut, part of which is Acadia National Park land). On the Chesapeake Bay, the watermen fish for crabs and oysters (depending on the time of year), and here it is lobsters. The boats are different. The lives, probably not so much.
