As a child, my Mama, Daddy, and I would camp on the Gulf coast near Punta Gorda. There was nothing but the Phosphate Dock at that point. Camping on the beach was legal.
We used the same basic recipe as your sand flea chowder, but with coquinas,the pretty little colorful shells that burrow in the sand. Mama would wash, boil, and use the broth and bits of meat to make a delicious chowder.
