The Virginia Oyster Trail !
Hopefully you too will get lucky enough to enjoy a Pleasure House Oyster with a pea crab in it while you’re slurping it in the Lynnhaven on The Virginia Oyster Trail on your tour.
Thanks to Rex Hamaker of Taste of Tidewater for the great photo of a Pleasure House Oyster with a pea crab.
We talked shop this morning with Hap Chalmers of Lynnhaven Oyster Company & Congressman Scott Rigell.
Did we eat oysters IN the Lynnhaven?
You can too.
We can’t guarantee Scott or Hap will come out with you but we do know it’ll be edutaining, tasty and fun!
