As part of the grand tour of NZ, we have decided that musseling is a must. It's just something we don't have at home. Fun, easy, and delicious, it's a no-brainer!
Getting geared up!
Behold the wonders of the sea! No shortage of mussels around here!
Dan the Man looking like a pro!
True Hunter/Gatherers in action.
Someone's been doing CrossFit! Let the muscle/mussel puns roll.. Oh come on! Don't clam up on me now!

Heading back with our harvest.
Just a few of our trophies, ready to eat!
Like a nautical cereal box prize, this mussel came with a tiny crab inside!
