Dogs and Mussels

We had the pleasure of taking care of 2 fantastic dogs over the weekend. Scrap (the brindle colored mutt) and Stanley (the golden retriever) joined us on a number of adventures, including foraging for chanterelles (post to come) and a trip to Bakeman's beach to gather mussels for dinner.

Scrap reluctantly started the journey in the bed of the truck.

While we gathered dinner the dogs kept themselves busy swimming and playing in the water.

 A seaweed laden sand bar turned out to the best bet for mussels on this night. We go at low tide so that all of the mussels are exposed on the beach and rocks or in very shallow water. We've been out clamming too but I prefer the mussels because they're easier to get clean. When we got them home we scrubbed off the barnacles and made a traditional pasta with mussels, parsley, a little white wine and parmigiano reggiano. Hard to beat that.


The ride home. I hung in the back with the 2 dogs. Air Drying.
