Distracted by oysters. This is in one of the canals in our town – our second place to put in, after Princess Place Preserve. It is surprising how many oyster beds there are in the estuaries here. We learned the hard way not to get out in the shallows, as one place was mud waist-deep (mixed with oyster shells). I am not kidding. You could lose a little kid in there. But we managed and found a better spot to launch.
