Oct 22, 2010: Beach Cleanup 2010

Oyster World


Wednesday the weather was perfect. It was the kind of day that made you wish someone would pay you to tool around on a boat.  And that's what happened here on the oyster farm during our first official beach cleanup: we cruised around the HH estuary looking for stuff that didn't belong. The PCSGA organizes two annual beach cleanups, and over the years the shellfish growers have pulled a lot of nasty stuff out of Puget Sound. Our findings included two derelict boats, one of our own oyster grow-out bags, several tires that someone had used as part of a makeshift float, and a crunched crab pot. The haul:  beachcleanup7
