Opening day oysters

Today was the oyster season opener. 

Every year, the town of Barnstable grows oysters, and plants them for the recreational shellfishers.  The fact that Kevin and I have turned pro doesn’t stop us from getting our recreational permit and our weekly half-peck while the season lasts. 

On opening day, the beach is almost literally tiled with oysters.  You can get your limit (a half-peck is about 50 oysters) in ten minutes.  Which is exactly what I did.
