Oysters

Yaquina Bay is quite large.  The large bridge that I’ve been sharing with you in previous posts, crosses over the bay near the mouth.   We drove around the edge,  back about 5 miles to the Oregon Oyster Farm.  What a fascinating place..  seeing how they farm the oysters on nets attached to poles hanging in the bay..    We bought a small bucket,  took them home and pan fried a few.  The rest went into the freezer for a later date.  It was red tide so we couldn’t do any shooters.   They all had to be cooked.

 
You can order them on line and they’ll Fedex fresh ones…  right to your front door.  Check it out HERE.   
See that nice white edge of the water?   That is oyster shells that the workers shuck…  They’re quite blinding when walking up to the edge.

Sounds like an interesting place to visit, and the scenery is lovely, but those oysters, I wouldn't eat one if you paid me.

WOW! So many oyster shells...I wonder if they will be processed for calcium supplements. We used to go picking oysters at one time - they taste really good coated in a batter and then fried. I enjoyed your post. Great pictures!

Hey Mish,
I forgot to let you know that yes Rob told me he say you at Golden Corral. They tried to make it in time for breakfast but missed out on most of it as only had a few pancakes & such left.... Next time they need to be more timely..I wasn't hungry enough to make the buffet worth the price so I just stayed home this time.
