To find an intact quahog shell on the beach is a wonderful thing. If it is still hinged, it is a true prize. But if we take the shell home, the hinge (ligament) will dry up, crack and we have the two halves of the shell together.

Here, the surf has started the process of tearing that tissue of the hinge or ligament. But it is a complete quahog shell, so we have found something that is its own reward even so.
