While Dan Pronk was lobstering just west of the Island yesterday, he discovered several octopi in his pots. I did not know that we had octopi in these waters. And I have never seen an octopus until Dan showed me. I met up with Dan at the pier in Madaket as he arrived from offshore with the octopi. Click on any picture to enlarge

Jo Perkins was at the dock when Dan came in with the octopi. Here she is holding one-

An octopus is an interesting sea creature. I learned among other things that they have three hearts and they are very intelligent.

Oh, that! We thought it was snow as well. It was salt.
