1. You dug for quahogs.
At least once a summer, you and the family went to your favorite salt pond with your clam digging tools looking for dinner. For some, your digging tool of choice was the clam rake, and others, your bare hands. Either way, you got dirty, had lots of laughs, and ate a delicious dinner.
2. You grabbed for brass rings on a carousel.
You tried so hard to get that lucky brass-colored ring for a free ride. If you’re from the north, you grew up going to the Crescent Park Looff Carousel at Carousel Park in East Providence, and if you’re from the south, you visited the Flying Horse Carousel at Watch Hill Park in Westerly.
