Other additions to the calander year.


April 1st thru June 30th is Lobster mating season. Catching, selling and cooking live lobsters are prohibited. Many restaurants stock up and freeze lobsters for this season.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

May thru August- Sea bathers eruption caused by exposure to Thimble jellyfish larvae. Peaks in May and June. To help cut down on the risk of exposure, shower immediately after swimming, preferably without your bathing suit. Use of cortisone creams and anti-histamines may help. Clears within 2 weeks.
