Two hours later, everyone gathers as the Days remove the tarp and reveal the bake. Bill and his sons examine the lobsters: perfection. As efficiently as the bake was assembled, the food is served, and no one on Prudence Island that day can remember clams and lobsters ever tasting so good.

    Oh what wonderful memories your extended families will have over the years. My husband and I had friends from Massachusetts that often spoke of have clam bakes. The listeners were always left with a wish they could have participated also. Bottoms up!

    I’ve been away from New England since 1994 and miss it more and more. It remains in my heart as home. Stories about clambakes like this make me miss it more. How wonderful it must be to gather like this. The memories will keep you warm for years.

    My Grampa used to make the broth style milk ..oh how I miss that and kick myself as I never learned how he did it. If I could only make it now I’d still have my New England but I thankfully I have my Yankee

    I have enjoyed many a sweet steamer from Prudence Island when a friend, John Schaefer was kind enough to bring us some from the island while he a nd his wife were there with family.
