Oysters....


In Inverness, CA....
there is a place that serves, among other things, local oysters from Tomales Bay, just across the street. At Salt Water, you can get several kinds that are raw and on the half shell. The ones from Scotty's Cove and the Hog Island oysters lead with brine but not the breathless kind. Scotty's Cove oysters finish like butter and the Hog Island oysters are sweet like butterscotch. Neither are brackish, both are meaty. $3 per slurp.
