RAZOR CLAM DIG
From our Intrepid Reporter, a Guest at Bob's Pacific Beach
Razor Clam Inspector?
As I walked along the beach, by myself and staying clear of
the water, I think some of the participants figured I was
checking the catch count and for licenses because most
acted like they were just looking and concealed their mesh
catch bag, which, in most cases had significantly more than
15 clams. The shrimp pictured here came from Sunset
Beach near the Analyde Gap Road. Somebody caught him in
their clam tube and left him there. He was about 2-1/2 inches
in length. A very bold seagull swooped in and grabbed him
right in front of me just after I had taken the picture.
Hang on to Your Camera!
I went down to Copalis Beach this afternoon/evening. Took
several pictures of the rock as the sun set. There is a
smaller rock in front of Copalis Rock that was just barely
sticking out last time I was at the beach. This time, as the
tide was receding, I thought I would splash through the last
couple feet of water and jump up on top of the small rock.
Little did I know the sand had all washed away from the front
side of the rock and just about the time I went to leap, I fell
into really cold, waste deep water. Not sure the new digital
camera survived. It's in the drying process as we speak. The
Blackberry came around so we'll see.
