I just had and exhausting but fun weekend with the woman again.
On friday I asked where I should go clamming. I was expecting to stay close to home because I was planning a trip with Jeff (akfun) out of Whittier sunday. I posted it pretty late so I didnt get a reply until I checked the next morning around 6am.
Matt (Meat Purveyor) told me to go the mouth of Ninilchik. Always trust the cook. So, Rose and I headed down to Ninilchik to try our luck.
Man did we have fun!!! I never knew how fun clamming can be. At firs we kept smashing the shells. We didnt really understand the the shovel was only to dig the firs hole. After we figured out how to do it, we starting getting nice whole ones. Man, I cannot explain how happy I was to be able to blow my nose on my sleeve, have mud on my face, hat, sunglasses...even mud on my lips!! and have people not even notice. What a fun adventure. No wonder kids are always dirty! Its the only way to party! HA!
The first pic is me convincing Rose that these clams are AWESOME raw!! HAHAAHAHAHAHAH
I told her right before she bit in! She would have been mad!
The second is our "small" catch. I cannot imagine a limit!
