Oyster Cleanup Completed at Scenic Beach

I still remain skeptical about whether this was the Navy or not. As I remember it, that side of the Canal has oysters all over the beaches. It’s just odd. Even the scientists say they haven’t seen a storm create this kind of thing….. call me unconvinced.

Oyster Cleanup Completed at Scenic Beach

SEABECK —
About 35 volunteers turned out Monday to move oysters at Scenic Beach State Park, completing the work that 65 other volunteers started <http://www.kitsapsun.com/news/2010/aug/20/dozens-turn-out-to-help-imperiled-oysters-in/>  on Friday.

The oysters had been washed up high on the beach on Aug. 11 — about the time a Navy ship, the USS Port Royal, was operating in Hood Canal <http://www.kitsapsun.com/news/2010/aug/13/ships-wake-prompts-oysters-to-wash-up-on-shore/> . Navy officials are investigating to determine whether the ship was to blame. Shellfish biologists familiar with Hood Canal say they have never seen a storm move oysters in such an extreme pattern.
