The Big Job

We are back in the water!

Over the next week I'll be re-floating the oyster cages, taking stock, and cleaning oysters. It's a huge job- really the biggest job of the season. The (already hefty) cages will come up twice as heavy as they went down in the fall- covered with a winter's worth of seaweed and a true menagerie of ocean creatures. The pontoons on each cage need to be opened and emptied of water. Everything needs to be retied to the growing-season longlines. I'll be a busy. See you on the other side.
