ROCKLAND, ME - On August 19, 2011, Friday morning was a great day for lobstering in Rockland harbor. By the lighthouse was a Lobster man raising his traps with lobsters and those that didn't. The Lobster man checked the size of the lobsters bodies, to band their claws for those he caught and are the right size.

Also, the Lighthouse breakwater was busy with parents and their children enjoying the beautiful day. It is nice to see such a wonderful and beautiful place being enjoyed by the public.
