The loss of these clam beds has meant more than the loss of some fishing. Rather, it has caused the loss of a once-vibrant culture that existed on the South Shore.
Parrucci and Sinacore have both moved on from clamming since their youth. They remain reminiscent of the summers spent on the water with friends and the life they experienced while clam digging. Parrucci enjoys his work as a mechanic today, but remains reminiscent of the days when his hands were covered in salt from the sea, rather than oil from an engine.
