Clam Shells

When you live on the Eastern Shore of VA, your car is usually dirty, your driveway is generally not paved, rather it is made of crushed clam and oyster shells,  (what? that is insane, how many shells does it take to make a driveway that is a quarter of a mile long?)  an ass load, dump truck after dump truck,  Where do they all come from?  Shucking houses that shuck and package oysters and clams for shipping.  Mountains of shell are created, and we spread them on our driveways and roads like you would gravel.  We take it for granted; my guess is you will find it practically amazing, I know I did.

When I looked at the floor mats in my car this morning and they were peppered with little pieces of shell, I smiled,  I love living on the Eastern Shore of VA.  It is one of the most unique places that I know of, it is special, it is different, it is unique and it is my home and I love it.
