Lobster Harvesting Ballet
You might not think it likely, but lobster boats do dance. They race out on stage then begin a complex series of pirouettes among their scattered traps. After the circled trap is checked, a quick dash to the next trap is made and another pirouette begun. I've watched them many times. It's quite delightful to me, although I must admit that at the same time I'm admiring the dance, I'm also calculating whether I might end up in their way, and so being careful to avoid that.
