Fact Or Fiction?

   I'm assuming that all those that live by the sea have heard the ol' wives tales about only harvesting oysters during the months that have an "R" in them ...  For those that live too far away to have heard of this myth one of the reasons is/was that during the "non-R" months the oysters are spawning and therefore not at their prime.  Another reason was that it was thought to be too warm to safely collect and then transport them.  As you can see here my picking partner doesn't give a damn what the myths are ....  It's May and we just finished picking dinner off the beach at Nanoose bay.  Fresh oysters and clams do make a tasty meal. 

Just the same I'm a little concerned that we came across three fairly large crabs that were dead on the beach ....

Maybe there IS something to the myth?
