Watery Wednesday: Block House Bay 2




http://waterywednesday.blogspot.com/

At the same beach at Block House bay I was curious at the two parallel bars. A local gentleman told me they were the remnants of the old surf boat ramp. At the sea end, the bars were covered with oysters.

The water engineer says there are sewage in the harbour, and that stopped me from harvesting the delicious morsel.

http://msredneck.blogspot.com/ The Japanese Redneck's comment reminded me of once when I ate delicious fat raw oysters in a hotel in Singapore. As I am a greedy pig when it came to raw sea food, I ate just the oysters and no carbo or anything else that evening. I asked the waiter if the oysters came from New Zealand, and he replied,"No, grown locally in our waters."

Boy!!!!! did I pay for it for the next 48 hours. The oysters were coming out from both outlets. Since then, I always eat some carbo before I pig myself out with any sea food.

Yeah, they probably wouldn't taste very good.

Anne, it sounds like you had food poisoning! Oysters are very perishable and easy to go bad. Raw oysters are especially risky, I am too afraid to eat them. You poor thing!! I did notice something on those bars, and clicked to get a better look. Glad you told us it was oysters!

Hmm...interesting. I also like to eat raw oysters, but there's a need to be careful these days.
In answer to your question about heath spotted orchids, yes, they are summer flowers. I took the photos along the road between north of Sweden and Norway, where the abound.

You've been poisoned by those raw oysters! I've never eaten raw sea food here...

WATER

Water in a drop of rain,
Water swirling down the drain;
Water clinging to the trees,
Water filling up the seas;
Water frozen, water free,
Water is the stuff for me!
