Clam Box & Hodgie’s Two

2017 New England, Massachusetts, Road Trip

On our way back to Black Bear Campground we decided to indulge ourselves in a classic New England meal. In Ipswich we stopped at The Clam Box, a local institution, and ordered a Native Clams meal. While we waited to pick up our food at the counter a dining room table opened up. We lingered, savoring the delicious clams while we watched the folks who’d come on the tour bus clear out. This may have bee the same restaurant in which we feasted on Ipswich clams when we traveled through here in 1975. It certainly was here at the time. Then we headed to Hodgie’s Too, another local institution almost next door to the campground. Our neighbors had recommended the place and sure enough we saw them with their grandsons there getting a pre-dinner dessert. If you go, know that the servings are huge! The quarter kiddie is more than a pint of ice cream, delicious premium ice cream. Yummy!

    Mmmmmm, this is one of my favorite places to eat. It was in my neighborhood. Now, I can no longer say that but will return to eat here at some point.

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
