“I don’t even know what a Mock Turtle is,” says Alice. “It’s the thing that Mock Turtle Soup is made from,” replies the Queen imperiously, who then takes her to meet the Gryphon who, in turn, introduces Alice to the Mock Turtle.

The Mock Turtle and the Gryphon enact the Lobster Quadrille, a dance in which all the creatures in the sea line up to dance with the lobsters, the refrain of “Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, will you join the dance?” ringing out as they do so.

In Bermuda Wonderland, Devonshire Dock plays host as the location for the Lobster Quadrille. Vibrant blue water laps at the North Shore as traditional Bermuda kites circle overhead. Today, the dock is a gathering place for local fishermen – a far cry from its historical role as a key stopping point for the Royal Navy during the War of 1812.
