Birding and Steamers ~

Howdee all,

Jeff and I were told to go to Tern Island for birding..

It is also a place where people go to dig Steamers at low tide.

Birding and clams, a great combination.

I once stole a Huge clam from a seagull after it dropped it on the beach at Pismo. Yum!

That's why I am heading up that way next summer... I am dying for steamers & LOBSTA'... we use to go clamming all the time when we went to Buzzards Bay for the summer. (my Aunt's place then my parents)
Wish I had bought that house way back when...I'd be there now! lol
Have fun & Travel safe
