Dateline:  The Hood Canal in western Washington State.

 

Even though we are land-locked here in the mountains of western Maryland, don't think for a minute that we can't be voracious fans of eating seafood, including those two-valved, hinged delectables called clams.  Whether here at home, or on vacation at the shore, the scrumptious taste of clams can be savored in many ways, be it Manhattan or New England chowder, dip,  sauce, baked, stuffed, a casserole, part of seafood bisque, fried, or even, for those with a love of brine, raw.
