Bayocean is a location in the Eden Pond Series.
Extending north from Cape Meares, the Bayocean Peninsula is a long, sandy spit that separates and protects Tillamook Bay from the Pacific Ocean. In the first few decades of the 20th Century, the peninsula was home to the thriving resort town of Bayocean.
Bayocean Peninsula was also home to a number of Japanese oyster specialists who came to Tillamook Bay in the late 1920s to manage beds seeded with Pacific oysters from Japan. Several of these oyster farmers would remain until March 1942 when, with the onset of World War II and the rise of anti-Japanese sentiment, the FBI gave them permits to move inland. Soon thereafter, the internment of the Japanese residents of the entire west coast, both U.S. citizens and foreign nationals alike, would begin.
