Seaside birthday : Razor clams, a bust

Posted on | Monday, January 12, 2009 | 7 Comments

Matt, Indy and I spent Saturday night and Sunday at Seaside this weekend and despite not finding one razor clam in a record breaking season, we had a wonderful time. Indy was a terrific travel companion and didn't whine or complain. On Saturday, the wind and rain blew at us sideways while we were clamming by lantern light in the evening/night. At that point, the tide was already a bit too high. It was crazy. I felt like my face was getting a microdermabrasion treatment. Indy's face and body turned completely gray from all the sand.
At night, we ate at Girtle's Restaurant. Matt had steak and I got the fish and chips. Yum! On Sunday, we forced ourselves out of bed after staying up late and went clamming again, but still couldn't find any. We hit the snooze a few too many times, so I suspect we still got out too late. We're thinking of trying again next weekend, when low tides will be in the early afternoon. For breakfast, we ate at Pig'n Pancakes and afterwards, we walked around Seaside's downtown to shop and go to the Arcade. For lunch, a healthy serving of elephant ears and candy. When we were out with Indy, without fail, every person that saw her came over to pet the cutie pooch. Her ego, I am sure, is enormous by now!
Here are some photo highlights:

On the beach at Seaside, the lone fisherman searches for clams. Okay, it's just Matt.

Indy was a Pointer in a previous life. "The clams are that way!"

"Maybe if I close my eyes, the clams will appear."

"oooh, lots of water!"

"Okay, I've had enough water!"

Indy with "dad".

Indy with "mom". Update: Just wanted to say that the rubber boots I'm wearing are from Joe's. The brand is Western Chief and here is a link to a very similar pair - the only difference is the contrasting color of green on the sole and trim. I don't know if you can tell, but I'm wearing two pairs of pants in this photo. It was chilly at the beach. Both pairs soaked through, but these wellies kept my feet warm, comfy and completely dry! Amazing! Everyone... go out and get a pair!

Missing you...

"Look at how pathetic I look! Take me with you!"

Matt made me wear it! We're at the shop, Seaside Mostly Hats. Like the scarf? I got it at a neighboring shop and it is made using recycled silk.

Typical couple's tourist shot. :)

Here is a photo of Indy's brother, Badger! Isn't he cute? I recently exchanged some emails with his owner. It is great to see his progress and to hear updates. He is so big! Thank you, Kelly!!

    Myra, your puppy is SOOOOO cute! What a cute little button - is he going to get much bigger?

    On a side note, I LOVE your wellies - where did you get them?! Imagine - fashionable rubber boots!

    Hi Lindsay!

    Thank you so much for the sweet comment on Indy and my wellies! Indy, I suspect, will probably get to about 3 times her current size, or around 50 pounds. I wish puppies stayed small, but I think Indy will be cute no matter what size. :)
    My wellies I actually got at a sporting goods store, Joe's ( I didn't see them on the website, but at the store they are $29.99. I love them. I had several ladies at Seaside stop me to say how cute they were. You should get a pair of these! They are comfy and my feet were 100% dry after playing around in the surf all morning.

    I grew up in Seaside and I must say, it is much more fun going back as a tourist than it was living there! ;)

    P.S. the bolero is sooooo perfect! Thank you!
