Quick trip because these shoals are at Tod’s (at the western outlet from Eagle Pond, should you be so inclined). linguine and mussels tonight. You don’t even need a clam rake to harvest mussels, by the way, in fact a rake just breaks their shells. See them, pick them up, albeit a little effort’s involved in twisting them free from the rocks and fellow mussels they entwine themselves in. Wussies (is that a homophobic term?) can wear rubber gloves – I use bare hands because it’s easier.
