Bruce is my former colleague. He holds clambake party every year at his private beach. The location is about 60 miles driving from Seattle.
His father started this tradition dozens of years ago. He keeps it alive up to this year.
I have attended the party several times. Occasionally I brought my friends with me. There are many people at the party.
Many tasty foods by the attendees!
Various drinkings including many spirited ones.
People brought kayaks. Kids love playing it on the water!
Some love singing. Particularly, they would sing until very late at night. This year the California Hotel was my favorite...some others were not familiar to me.
Preparing the clams.
There are five big buckets of clams for the party each time. Every one can get as much as he/she wants.
I was enjoying the clams.
Drinking Beer with the clams is the best.
Ladies were all smiling with the delicious foods.
Sunset on the cove.
Another picture of sunset.
Marshmallow on the bonfire.
Breakfast was also very enjoyable.
One can dig the clams on the beach for taking home.
These were by my family.
You might wonder that Bruce must be rich...here is Seattle, home to the richest people like Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos. In fact, he is just a software engineer like me. I ever said to him that if he developed the place, he might get quite bit of earning. However, he said he just wanted to keep the beach as it is. This is good to the environment and he can have the clambake party ever year for many years to come.
Unforgettable beach like Eden. Look forward to the next year's party.
