Oyster Shell Mountain

Maybe I’m a bad Washingtonian.  Until recently, I’d lived here for 8 years and never made it all the way to the coast.  I knew that there was a burgeoning oyster and shellfish fishery but I never really figured out where it was.  Well… both of those things have now been corrected.  Driving to Long Beach WA, we passed Willapa Bay – the source of all these oysters.  I guess the other thing that didn’t really occur to me is that if you catch tons and tons of oysters in one place, you probably end up with a lot of shells.
