If you haven’t had any luck at the casinos, you may strike it rich hiking along the flat, well-packed sands at Brigantine Island, one of many barrier islands along the southern New Jersey coast. Maybe you won’t find the leather-and-brass chest Captain Kidd purportedly buried here in 1698, but there are other treasures waiting to be discovered. These include the long, narrow Atlantic jackknife clam, strings of knobbed whelk egg capsules, and an assortment of shellfish found beneath rocks, planks, and driftwood.
