Hot rocks;
damp rockweed;
clams in net bags;
young corn in the husk;
a quartered turkey;
lobsters still alive;
homemade pork and venison sausage in cheesecloth bags;
a closed clay pan of beaten biscuits;
more weed;
a tarpaulin;

At the nearby campfire:

a thermos of sassafras tea;
a beer cooler;
oysters with bread and Tabasco sauce.
