You may remember that last August, Steve and I did a whirlwind tour of Cornwall, and along the way we stopped at the National Lobster Hatchery and adopted a couple of lobsters (as you do).
I was just looking at their website and discovered that our lobsters (Bob and Arthur), which were raised in captivity along with hundreds of others, were released by a scuba diver back into the wild in October last year – aw!
08/10/2005, Bob, South Fistral, Newquay (that’s Steve’s)
20/10/2005, Arthur, South Fistral, Newquay (that’s mine)
Did you know: Lobsters can live to be one hundred years old, and grow up to two metres in length (if they’re not eaten first that is).
