Low Tide

"I used to spend time out here as a kid. At one point my dad bought the land which includes access to the tidal flats where we have set up the oyster beds. The oysters will grow in beds out here until they are large enough to harvest. When the tide goes out we can work on moving them from bed to bed and doing maintenance. It's a beautiful spot." - Skip, Island Creek Oysters, Duxbury, MA
