Kirk is quite a character and wealth of knowledge. Though I expected to dig in the sand for clams and get wet, the experience was still great. We learned how to set traps to catch crab, how to pick mussels off the wall, how to throw a net to hypothetically catch herring, and how to catch an eel. So neat! I definitely had little interest in the topic, but thought the tour would be fun and learned a lot.
