Shellfish Heaven

Oct 30, 2019

To the Editor:

An afternoon of eating fresh oysters by the bay is pretty close to my idea of heaven. The dramatic view of sun, clouds, water – and a rainbow! – only added to the enjoyment of the terrific Shellabration event last Saturday. The Big Fat Deal going on here is the shellfish industry in Barnegat Bay. How great is it to know that these farmers are restoring our water quality, growing small businesses and providing this spectacular product all at the same time?

Kudos is due to all who organized the festival. The educational exhibits were well done, and the young ladies from Ocean County Vo-Tech should put to rest the idea that vo-tech equals gearheads, even for those of us who love a gearhead. The waterside fire pits were classy. While this event deserves to grow, the size was pretty nice just as it was.

Thanks to all who were involved. I’ll be back, and I’ll be looking for the product over the winter months.
