hunting and gathering

As a freegan, I am always on the lookout for free food, and on the boardwalk at Mangonui I scored a feed of mussels!

After parking my van overlooking the harbour, I was enjoying the view of the water and the boats when a pair of divers appeared in front of me having climbed up a ladder out of the water onto the boardwalk. They had with them a large net of mussels, which they dragged to a ute parked next to me and heaved ......Then, wetsuits and all, they climbed into the vehicle and drove away - leaving behind half a dozen fresh mussels of various sizes!

I grabbed my bucket and scooped the seafood up.

That evening I enjoyed the freshest and tastiest steamed mussels I have ever eaten...
