With the picnic basket loaded full of treats and Otto gassed up to capacity we headed to a provincial park that without a doubt is the best place to swish in the province with it's fine sandy bottom that gradually declines giving one a wide area to detect.
Along the way I had to rein in Otto and stop at the golf egg farm which is a par 3 at this location but in the time allotted I only found two!
From there it was a 22 km drive down a back road to the park.
We eventually met in the middle of the lake and chewed the fat for a tad. He then showed me the honker of a gold ring he had pulled out from the drink; a real beauty to say the least.
Marie and I continued up and down the lake at various depths netting a few coins and a silver toe ring along with an earing that could have passed for a wind chime.
Sure was a challenging swish when I went chin deep and the waves started throwing me about making target recovery and arduous adventure. Just wish all the water I swallowed from the waves was beer for I would have surely looked like a landed cod flopping around the deck of an ocean trawler.
Had mentioned to Andy that I knew where a ring was lost so after our picnic we motored off to another beach in search of the men's ring that supposedly had 3 diamonds in it. Searched the sand for over an hour finding only 2 coins.
Didn't want my gold streak to end so I sucked up big time and bribed her with the promise that I would make supper and do the dishes and in her good natured way gave the okay! Yessssss! Found this heavy digger under the sand and left it near the parking lot for some kid to enjoy.
Last chance hotel was a lake on the way home that I had just done a week ago.
About the fourth target here my number came in.
Took the long and winding road home along Waverly and sauvoured the view. Take for the day was the gold ring, silver toe ring, pirate happy face, 3 earings,dozer and 30 coins @ $11.64
