Tomales Bay: Below high tide

The lowest tides of all bring rowdy mobs of clammers out to the exposed sandflats to dig deeply for the prized Geoduck Clam (Panopea generosa) and several smaller species. Over the years the methods of digging change, but never how deep clammers like this one have to reach down for their bivalves. After busy weekends of digging, much of the larger wildlife (such as Bobcats) will disappear for several days after the onslaught of people.
