Dumping Day

Also known as the first day of the lobster season. The Boys spend the month getting ready and on the last Monday in Novemver at 7am the boats are allowed to set pots (lobster traps). It is tradition for families to head down to the wharf and wish all the boys and greenhorns off for the first day of what hopes to be a busy and sucessful lobster season.
