Note that I misspoke and called the little New England Basket Whelks - clams - ugh - for some reason I keep tripping up on those. So just to clarify, they are snails - univalves - not clams!
We had hoped to walk much farther out on Long beach for it really is spectacular when you get past the rocks. It is also a vital area for shorebirds like Piping Plovers and Terns to nest. I had hoped to do a bit more photography but perhaps next time. At the end of the video you can see long beach, bug light, and across Plymouth bay to Duxbury.
