    Although we make no guarantees about weather, September is usually sunny and warm. It is not the hottest time of the year (January, February) but it will likely still be in the low 30's.

    Hi, They are not baby lobsters, but slipper lobsters. A smaller and clawless member of the crustacean family. Here, they are often referred to as "cigale". I hope that helps.
