Clamming In The Hamptons


By Norris McDonald

It rained all day on a recent Friday as I traveled from Washington, D.C. to The Hamptons. But Saturday was a gloriously beautiful day and I went clamming with friends. Samara Swanston and her husband Daniel Newman are great hosts and this was one of many trips where we adventured in both New York City and at this endpoint on Long Island. Their house is in the historical hamlet of Sag Harbor.

We caught about two dozen clams on this outing and I even caught a large clam without the drag basket by using a toe digging technique. We were clamming at the Barcelona Neck inlet to Peconic Bay.

The pictures and video below show the fun we had. Nothing like a nice relaxing weekend in The Hamptons.

Thanks Danny and Samara. See you again real soon.
