    As promised, a picture of our clam harvest! It was a rainy Sunday in Provincetown, Cape Cod…I had vowed not to go, given the 18 degree temps of the previous two days, but it was 35 and felt downright balmy,  so I resisted the Californian within me who was saying “Are you crazy?” and waded out into the receding tide with three friends. Well, look out clams! You are only allowed one bucketful, and we filled that sucker in no time. A local came over at one point and, in a heavy Bostonish accent, said “You found a honeypot? Can I join ya?” It seemed to me like bad fishing manners, but we let him rake anyway. He found nary a clam and wandered off muttering. We went back to the house and had the rare experience of feasting on as many huge, juicy, sweet clams and mussels steamed with garlic and wine as our stomachs could hold. We headed back to New York in a happy shellfish haze.
