What I love about this Island is that we can still go clamdigging and smelting. When I was a teen here we could just go to the beach, dig the clams or rake in the smelt and cook them right on the beach with a bonfire going. Well you need a permit now and no way can you have a beach fire! They are the worst to put out. I was in the Fire Department here and at least twice a year we would get a call to extinguish a beach fire. It isn't that easy. There is alot of dry driftwood on the beaches, and under the rocks. So we need a penetrator to get down under the rocks.
I wonder how we all got away with it in the 60's? Hmmmm.

Do you realize that in about 40 years, we'll have thousands of OLD
LADIES running around with tattoos?
And RAP music will be the Golden Oldies!)
