For those of you not familiar with scalloping, here's a little video we shot a few weekends ago while we were on the water.
I like to describe it as easter egg hunting in the ocean. You wear flippers, a snorkel, a mask and carry a bag with you and simply fill it up with scallops as you swim along.
Here's my first bag full from this past weekend!
Once we fill our cooler up, it's time to clean them.
Technically, you don't have to clean them on the water, but it's easier, and you can take home more when they're already cleaned! There are limits per person and per boat.
So, if you're wondering what we're doing every weekend until the end of September...this is probably it!
It really is the perfect way to spend a day with family and friends! Then, back home we get to spend a night around the dinner table enjoying a scallop-themed meal!
Once we meet our limits, or feel like calling it a day, we head toward the nearby spring-fed river for some post scalloping fun. It's a constant temperature (pretty much freezing) year round, and since it's fresh water, it's the perfect way to rinse the salt off of ourselves and the boat.
The real fun, however, is when we're lucky enough to find some friends in the river! Here's the friend we made recently. Isn't he cute?
The water is not quite as clear as it has been in years past. Here are some friends we have made in the past couple of years.I hope you enjoyed seeing how we spend our summer weekends. What do you do during your summer weekends?
