While in Thailand, my aunt spoke of the days when she would go to the beach to dig for clams, which would be used for soup stock. We decided to drive down to Bang Saen the next day.
We started with lunch, buying from the hawkers that walked by our seats. Crabs, crab egg salad, oysters, sweet sticky rice, fried noodles, soda, quail eggs, fresh guava. Cappuccino from across the street. Hazelnut, raspberry, pistachio gelato.
We started digging a little later on in the day, when the tide slightly receded.
