Yes, it is big enough! It won't fit through the measuring tool. After we get a bunch of clams, I let them clean themselves out in a bucket with changes of fresh sea water. Then I steam them open, chop them up, and make clam chowder with bacon, potatoes, onion, garlic, and milk. Yummy.
Look at this mysterious creature we found. I thought it was a pine cone at first, but it seemed to be alive. Do you know what it is?
