One of the best things about living near the water is eating the things that live in the water. In this case, oysters and clams from Tomales Bay.
Maureen and I grabbed a picnic table by the water at the aptly named Tomales Bay Oyster Farm. Just past Point Reyes, the lo-fi, high-quality outpost delivers top- notch oysters and clams at great prices.
Bring a 12-pack of PBR, tabasco, lemon, and horseradish and you have yourself a gut-busting day in the sun.
Don't forget a shucker.
