Arrr!

Avast, lubbers!  There be a wee pretty bivalve as lives along the California coast, about so long's the last joint of a woman's finger, and the shells are shades of pale yeller and rose and so forth. Pirate Bear would be obliged to any sailor who could remind her what the little critters be called, because it's fallen clean out of what passes for the captain's mind.

Double grog rations for the first to name her!



Yo ho ho and a bottle of suds
It's a pirate's life we choose
No we don't want a bucket of blood
Just a cup is all we can use!



That's genre piracy to you!

Coquinas?

R.
Aye, those be the beastie! You may live another day!

*passes the grog*
Actually "coquina" is only the Atlantic species; I've never seen the Pacific species referred to as such. They're called bean clams on the West Coast. Not quite as pretty as the Florida coquinas, but they do have their moments.

Closely related, though, and I'm not sure why the common name hasn't carried over.
---but she'll probably kill you in the morning.
Arrr! And they're quite good sauteed in oil you know.

Take a gander at this little beauty: http://www.brainsluice.com/miscellanea/ickle/archive/coquinas.html
Just couldn't remember what the damned things were called, is all.

One too many belaying pins upside the brainpan, matey.
