Clam Diggin.......



I was on my flicker account just this afternoon, I really go there sporadically (did I spell that right?) Anyway, I was there today and had 3 emails, I dont hardly ever get mail to that account. The email was from a Seattle Newspaper that wanted to publish this sunset captured photo of my peeps going clam diggin!

Of course, since I dont ever go to flicker, let alone check my mail, I missed the deadline. Sorry. I thought that was kind of neat that she asked for my ol photo...

This is how we roll, here in Washington, there are no bathing beauties here. Only nice cold 39 degrees and wind. Perfect for a winter dig.

My mom and dad on the left. BobVilla sporting orange and drinking a cold beverage, burning a little 2x6 remant from the coastal nest. Ryan next to his dad. This photo was just taken right below the ol flipparoo.
Then there are all 3 rugrats playing in a little creek off the hillside.

More randomness ahead, guaranteed! Its all over out here...

So many great memories of clam digging a Kalaloch as a kid. Can't wait to take mine. Great pics :0)

Oh girl, I am so sad you missed the deadline, I didn't even know we could get email through flickr. More importantly, I was thrilled to see these pictures...it has been a dream of mine to go clam digging. I love anything to do with seafood, and seafood gathering.

Those are great pictures. The one of your kids is great. I have a Ryan too. We must be kindred spirits :)
I hope to get back out to the coast with my brood one day... I love the NW coast. Sigh.

That sunset clam-digging photo is gorgeous. Now you know it's desirable for publishing, so market that photo and get some money! Travel magazines are always looking for stock photos. Or just save that pic for your Cottage Living spread. You know those articles where they don't just show the house staged all pretty, but they show what life is like there? The sunset photo would be an amazing ending to a piece on life at your cottage!
