Toni Hermansen, the owner of Buck Bay Shellfish on Orcas Island, feeds her patrons oysters and clams from the bay on the south side of the island. Her sole mission on Earth seems to be to feed people the oysters and clams she cultivates and harvests from her own front yard. And it's a fitting addition to a Pacific Northwest locavore tour: an oyster snack plucked out of the sea, shared under the sun—straight from the source. 117 EJ Young Rd., Olga, WA; 360/376-5280 or buckbayshellfishfarm.com.
