Geoducks ('gooey-ducks') are giant Northwest U.S. clams that are wonderful to eat if tenderized correctly. My wife and I had some yesterday with some friends, who had hauled them out of their freezer, thawed them, skinned them, pounded them flat with a mallet, breaded them, and pan-fried them in garlicked olive oil. Yum. This reminded me that I had some really old images of geoducks from my past. So, from the wayback machine, here I am (in the maroon sweatshirt) digging them up in 1973.
