Clamboat Ahoy!

Seafood is a favorite of my family! So when Dylan said he wanted to go clamming on Daddy's day off we all jumped on board...the boat that is...and headed out to dig up some clams. We anchored the boat in the shallow part of the bay and hopped out to start digging.

Of course Zoe, Mako (the dog), and I just came for the picnic on the boat...

After digging and eating it was time for some relaxation so Dylan and Zoe floated the afternoon away...

We collected a few dozen clams throughout the day and of course the tough part was opening them when we got home...although I can't say I know this for certain considering I let the boys do all the shucking. Zoe and I just sat and watched and took pictures of course!

(yes, Zoe is helping shuck clams in her new ballet outfit...don't ask!)
Then came the best part...the clam feast! We had homemade clam chowder, steamed clams in white wine sauce, and fried clams. Could life be any yummier??!!

*The shrimp was Dave's dinner - see below!

I just have to share how absolutely wonderful my husband is. Dave does not eat clams AT ALL...not fried, steamed, souped, or otherwise. So isn't he just a trooper considering he always digs the most clams, opens them himself, and cooks them all. I just love my man!!
