|Beautiful colours; burgundy, cream, and whitest white.|
|The black, stripy thing is a small mussel, attached. The large shell is attached to the rock.|
This was on a low rock about halfway down the intertidal zone. It's small, for an oyster; about 2 to 2.5 inches long. We only saw the one. I've seen a few, very few, oysters in the sand on White Rock beach before, but they were all white.
