Perfect beach weather this weekend - er, perhaps not for tanning - but I love these warm misty days for taking pictures. Seeing as it's still early May, I pretty much found the expected number of folks at this beach in Two Islands, Nova Scotia: 2 tourists looking for fossils and one local clammer!
Clams are harvested by hand with a pitch fork in the Parrsboro-Five Islands area from Bay of Fundy's low tide mudflats. It's a simple, if somewhat labour intensive, way of eating from the ocean floor. There is still a Clam Factory in operation seasonally in Five Islands. There it's not uncommon to see dozens of locals participating in the harvest and, of course, fresh clam chowder and fried clams 'n chips on local restaurant menus.
