Gather friends. Dig a hole on the beach. Load rocks. Load wood. Light it on fire.
Wait; eat oysters; drink beer. Three or four hours later, get a wheelbarrow and bring down the lobsters and clams. Remove the bags, the bands.
Dive for seaweed. Collect it in fish totes. Wet the tarp.
Layer: Hot rocks. Seaweed. Lobsters, clams, potatoes, sausage, onions. More seaweed. Tarp.
Wait; eat oysters; drink beer.
Then in a fury: fling off the tarp. Fill the wheelbarrow with food! Crack the lobsters! Melt the butter! Set the table, grab the napkins, get the plates and forks.
Eat with friends.
