Clam Farming ...The Harvest
In the collage, the top left picture shows Bill emptying a bag of clams. The bottom left shot is of him preparing to open a bag of clams that has spent about 12 months underwater.
The clam pulling crew...(Kelly and I) loaded up the bow of the boat with plenty of bags as the upper right shot shows. Funny, but each bag seemed to get progressively heavier as the day went on...
In the lower right, a lovely handfull of clams.
The skipper (above) kept us on task and allowed no slacking. This man is a walking, talking history book of fishing and living on the water.
The capable Mr. B. at the helm. We flew in loaded to the gunnels with clams. It was a good harvest and a great day.
Next step, ...Rosie's packing house.
