Often when we think of lobster, the giant-clawed Atlantic lobster in Maine comes to mind. We tend not to think of palm trees and the sandy beaches of Santa Barbara—but that’s precisely where Father Ian stumbled upon a California spiny lobster fisherman in this episode of 'Playing With Food.'

Warning signs were posted Sunday at beaches along the Santa Barbara Harbor following a morning sighting of great white shark sighting.

Leadbetter Beach was closed for 24 hours following the sighting, but is now open again with the warnings posted.

Officer Jan Martinez with the Santa Barbara Harbor Patrol says more than a half-dozen people reported seeing the shark.
