Today we took Aiden to Crowe’s Pasture Beach in Dennis. Part of the beach is used for Oyster farming. This is an aquaculture practice in which oysters are raised for human consumption. The seed is put in racks which are held above the bottom of the ocean floor and are accessible for harvest at low tide. Low tide is also the perfect time for a young German Shepherd Dog to run and chase sea birds. Luckily he is never fast enough to catch them!
These are hard working commercial fishermen who do this for a living.
As soon as we were a distance away from the oyster farming Aiden was off chasing birds
Time to cool off and have quick rest
Looking for birds – ready to go again…
We saw many types of sea birds. Just before leaving we spotted two Blue Herons. The pictures were taken from quite a distance.
