Awesome! "Bed" time for the oysters.

Thanks! And now for me, too! All the shots I took, and it's pretty much the same as the first one B-n-P posted of them....Got some other sunsets and piles of seaweed shots, but too late to sort through tonight. Hope to wake up to more of the south island!

So they are beds for the oysters? Thank goodness for that, for a minute, I thought they looked like coffins. This is so effective, kamaly they stand out so crisp and black against the sheen of the wet sand. Spectacular, in fact!

The tide must go out an awful long way then, if it has to come back in and cover all this lot?

Very best wishes to you,

Thanks, Sue! Yes - the tide goes out what must be over a half mile here, though not totally out - the water stays about 8" deep for most of that. (There's a total change of about 12') In fact, from shore these cages seem very close in compared to how far you can walk out. Lots of clams and other stuff! I put two posts of them on my other page, along with a view through the 8" of water. Needless to say, a great place for kids!

Beautiful shot, Kamaly! "O Oysters, come and walk with us!" The Walrus did beseech. "A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk, Along the briny beach: We cannot do with more than four, To give a hand to each."

Our oysters don't have beds, they sleep on the beach. I knew someone with an oyster lease on Vancouver Island, and he just lets them wander around on their own. At low tide we could walk amoung them and pick up the starfish and moon snals that were eating them. This photo is a different oyster lease, quite typical, this one is in the middle of nowhere.

spectacular sunset!

Thanks very much, Cal, don, steve111, Nawitka, and jean ! Yes, it's pretty understandable that everyone from Patti Page to Barry Manilow have songs about Cape Cod, and the sunset over the bay! (LOL, I can see guy curling up in a little ball and covering his ears at those reminders!)

Nawitka - unfortunately the oysters here are not Free-Range. They don't even get nice beds at a typical Cape Cod B&B...they are cooped up in cages with crowds of their relatives! :(

I posted a couple of closer views with an informational link on B-n-P's page. And if the site ever allows uploads again, she might even be given a totally different view of the sunset!

There was actually a very sad reason to have gone to the Cape yesterday, so I feel a bit guilty having spent the end of the day at beaches on both sides, visiting the ospreys, then having lobster salad and ice cream for dinner, but it sure did balance out the day, and I can think of it as a little tribute to a life well lived there.

thanks, dianne, szeker, and helen . Strange about the spammer, helen, since there's no link! I wonder why he's wasting his time only posting that annoying comment!

and nawitka, the poem is really so appropriate for this beach, since at low tide you can walk out so far with it still only being a foot deep max.

thanks very much, simisa ! Cheers!
