Plan to stop at Goosepoint Oysters’ The Oystery ™in Bay Center. Here you can fire up one of the BBQs, purchase a bag of freshly picked oysters and grill them with or without a dab of butter on the spacious deck. Watch the oyster scows dock to unload their harvest and slurp oysters on the half shell or as shooters in keepsake shot glasses while waiting for the coals to get hot. En route and if the tide is low, consider a stop at Bruceport Park to see off-ground and string-cultivation methods of cultivating oysters. Or, when headed south again, turn right on Dike Road after crossing the Palix River. This alternative route passes famed oyster farms including Seasonal Seafood, R&B Oyster Inc., Stony Point Oysters, and Ekone Oyster Company; Dike Road links up with Bay Center Road to loop back to Hwy 101.
