Drayton Harbor Pearl

by Rich
(Glen Ellyn, IL, USA)

I was in Seattle on travel with some work peers and ordered 1/2 dozen oysters advertized from Drayton Harbor in Puget Sound. I bit into the oyster and spit out a little white bead. Before I realized what it was, one of the waitstaff walked by and said how cool it was I found a pearl. I asked how common it was... She said she had worked at the restaurant for over 3 years and that was the second one she had seen.

Hi Rich,

Neat that you found a pearl and that someone alerted you to what it was. 2 pearls in 3 years isn't very many pearls to be found. Maybe she was hoping you'd give it to her! I hope you are enjoying your pearl find and hope it reminds you of a good time in Seattle! Thanks for sharing your good news.
