Who can resist going for a hunt as long as the weather is above freezing!
Well I, for one, can’t seem to resist the urge so it was back for one more swing around the beach.
I guess I’m going to have to put this area on my full-time – get there whenever I can list as it didn’t disappoint me … again!
I had the whole place to myself for almost an hour before Don H (from the club) joined me for a swing.
I was re-gridding the area’s that had been pretty well hunted over and was hoping for a couple of treasures that had been missed. The QDII was in fine form and was easily picking out those smaller targets. Many of them turned out to be bobby-pins but if the machined beeped – I dug!
You really have to have a pin-pointer for these small targets. It’s almost impossible to pick them out of the sand . . .
. . . but with the Vibra-Probe you could manage to find them!
Ahhhhh – Gold!
That’s a great way to start a hunt! The next target was silver and it was just as elusive till the pin-pointer buzzed and gave it away . . .
. . . and a short time after that, I pulled up a silver toe-ring.
All of these targets were fairly deep – 5 or 6 inches at the least.
There were precious few signals as almost all of the clad and trashy signals had been dug up. I got quite a few junk and kid’s earring and toe-rings and only 15 or 20 coins.
When I got home, I had one more surprise waiting to be discovered amongst the finds.
I’d found this small cat earring and had just lobbed it into the pouch with the rest of the junky finds but when I looked at it more closely ~ I discovered that it wasn’t junk at all ~ it was 14K gold!
Boy, was I surprised!
We’ve all heard the expression “No site is ever completely hunted out.” Well, this sure proves it to be true. All those hunters and all those machines and I'll bet there's still a treasure or two out there waiting to be found!
