I am in the heart of Desolation Sound now, anchored in Prideaux Haven. I spent the afternoon in the kayak and for a long time watched a young blackbear eating oysters at low tide. I noticed that it was sniffing the oyster carefully and only eating a few selected ones. When I was in the Harmony Islands, I ate about 40 oysters one sunny afternoon, and had a bit of an upset stomach and intestines the next morning. I had thought it was because I just ate too many, but maybe bears know more about oysters than I do? Unfortunately, I did not have my phone with me when I encountered the bear, so all you get is yet another picture of the beautiful scenery on another sunny day.
