Flying straight toward us a gull dropped a clam on the beach from about 10-15 metres in the air today at Martinique Beach Provincial Park. That clam didn’t break, but all along our walk we found clams – whole ones, broken ones and wet gull tracks. These clams were over 10 cm wide – really big and I’ve never seen so many of these large clams on one beach on one day. Some people call these clams quahogs.
There was excellent walking on this beautiful flat sand beach – all 10 kms, 5 km east and 5 km west to return. Martinique Beach is about an hour east of Halifax – map.
