Water visibility improves in the fall and winter.  It was time to enjoy some of the hard work and checkout the lease bottom snorkel style.  Oyster reefs are the equivalent to coral reefs in the Chesapeake Bay.  Not quite the Caribbean clarity but maybe in time.  Oysters improve water quality so I can only hope that as we and other growers put more oysters in the water, visibility will improve.  Some of the shell piles look great!
