THE TIDE IS LOW, THE SKY SPECTACULAR. WE ROLL OUR PANTS UP TO OUR KNEES, GRAB A BUCKET EACH AND START OUR HUNT FOR RAZOR CLAMS ON THE SHORES OF MUI NE BEACH. I SPOT PERFECT ROUND HOLES AND DIG IN THE SAND WITH MY BAMBOO STICK. THEY ARE SURPRISINGLY FAST, MANY GET AWAY, BUT I AM ABLE TO CATCH MY SHARE. RAZOR CLAMS CAN BE FOUND AT ASIAN FISH MARKETS, OR USE PIPIS AS A SUBSTITUTE.
