We’re having a clambake! To prepare the feast on the beach in a traditional manner, a layer of wet seaweed is placed over hot stones, followed by fruits of the sea such as steamers, mussels, quahogs, and lobsters. Potatoes, corn on the cob, linguiça sausages, carrots, and onions accompany the seafood. Alternating layers of seaweed and food are covered with canvas that has been drenched in seawater to seal in the heat and prevent the canvas from burning. The food is allowed to steam for several hours, while we work up an appetite playing in the surf!
