我不要赚钱,要把这片海滩像这样原貌一直保持下去。这样我每年都还能举办一次蛤蚌野餐会

Bruce 是我以前的同事。他每年要在自己的距西雅图60英里的自己私人沙滩上举行一次蛤蚌野餐会。

Bruce is my former colleague. He holds clambake party every year at his private beach. The location is about 60 miles driving from Seattle.

这片沙滩是他父亲遗传给他和一个弟弟和妹妹的。野餐会从他父亲几十年前开始一直到现在。

 

His father started this tradition dozens of years ago. He keeps it alive up to this year.

我参加这个野餐会几次。有时带朋友去。每次都有不少人。

 

I have attended the party several times. Occasionally I brought my friends with me. There are many people at the party.

 

大家都带上各种食品。

 

Many tasty foods by the attendees!

 

还有各种饮料。。。大量的酒类。。。他们好像有时还来点刺激的像大麻之类的东西。

 

Various drinkings including many spirited ones.

 

大家有小船的也带到这里来。我们两个孩子在划船。

 

People brought kayaks. Kids love playing it on the water!

 

有几个爱唱歌。今年我比较喜欢的一首是加州旅馆。。。很多其它歌曲我不很懂.

 

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.

 

准备野味!

 

Preparing the clams.

 

这样的每年有五大桶。。。你爱吃多少有多少.

 

There are five big buckets of clams for the party each time. Every one can get as much as he/she wants.

 

作者在享受蛤蚌

 

I was enjoying the clams.

美酒加蛤蚌。

 

Drinking Beer with the clams is the best.

美味让美人开心。

 

Ladies were all smiling with the delicious foods.

落日余辉.

Another picture of sunset.

篝火烤糖.

 

Marshmallow on the bonfire.

搭上帐篷过夜。

 

Camping overnight.

早上大家有丰富的早餐。

 

Breakfast was also very enjoyable.

然后在沙滩上挖蛤蚌准备带回家。

 

One can dig the clams on the beach for taking home.

这一箱蛤蚌还要费点儿功夫.

 

These were by my family.

写到这里,你可能认为BRUCE也肯定是一位富翁吧?毕竟这是西雅图,世界首富,二富都在这儿。可实际上,BRUCE 和我一样仅有一份普通的软件工程师的工作。我曾和BRUCE聊天说,你要是把这儿开发旅游,说不定能赚不少钱。他说他就要让这片沙滩一直想这样原貌一直保留下去。这样他还能每年都举行这样的海味野餐会。

You might wonder that Bruce must be rich...here is Seattle, where Bill Gates' and Jeff Bezos' homes are located. 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 as in the past many years.

再一览这难忘的沙滩。等待着明年的聚会。

 

Unforgettable beach like Eden. Look forward to the next year's party.

大姐 回复 悄悄话 Bruce是犹太人吧?从他的长相判断的。
海滩是他父亲的遗产,“遗传”一词用的不对。
