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

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.
