Christmas spirit and good will?'

The 'Lobster Trap Tree' on
Cape Ann MA

This unique tree is built with traps that lobster men and
 use to
trap a delicacy of lobster meat .
Children from Art Haven paint the buoys
 that decorate the tree.

Although the lobster trap tree is built a new each year,
this tree is also in a new place next to the harbor.
Older ones used to be on Main Street
 next to the Police Station.
The tree can be viewed both inside and outside.

You will see the entrance to the
inside in the photo below.
