I remember years ago when my parents would take us ( me and my 4 brothers ) under the Lesner Bridge to pick up Oysters. They had friends who lived in that area. We also crabbed a little farther down where there are neighborhoods and marinas now. I don't recall having to pay anything but, I do know we spent hours on the water and it was truly innocent, healthy FUN! We spent a lot of time together as a family. Maybe once the protected areas for Oyster Farms are put into place someone will create a family type fun program that will be valuable to people who really want to spend quality time together.

The Chesapeake Bay oyster is making a return ? If so I would take this as good news. I do not believe that it means our Bay is recovering from the toxins and pollutants we pour into her daily. I only hope that my children and grandchildren will still be able to swim and fish in the Bay the way Sheila describes. It is now no longer possible to get to the Bay in many area's due to restrictions from land owners who feel they own the Bay from the back of their deck to the waterline. The only thing keeping these selfish hoarders from erecting fences to the waterline is public access laws. That still doesn't stop them from glaring at you with there hands on their hips and complaining loud enough so you can hear them while walking along what they consider as their backyard and Ocean. They believe the beach belongs to them yet demand the City replace the sand washed away from a storm at the City's expense. You can not own what belongs to the public.
Sorry for getting off subject but this just $##(*& me off.
