One Hundred Years
A lifetime for a lucky person, but only an infancy for a cedar tree growing in the understory. Enough time for a river, traveling from forest to ocean, to change the shape of a beach. About half as long as people of European descent have lived in this particular corner of the world, but just a blink when weighed against the thousands of years humans have made their home here.
To an oyster, however, a century is an eternity. And it is also a long, long time for a business to keep itself together—especially a closely held, family-run business like ours.
