    Yesterday is history, tomorow a mystery. All we have is the here and now, it's a special gift. That's why we call it "The Present"

    Pity the poor agnostic dyslexic insomniac who lies awake at night wondering if there really is a Dog.

    Yikes, Hydro! Next time give us a warning! I almost went blind when I opened this post!

    Great detecting....such beautiful treasures!

    I'm jealous ...no, really I am so happy that you had a great time on vacation!

    Maybe this huge snowstorm and winds will move things along here in CT. I just finished my 4th round of shoveling the driveway..it just won't stop

    Skippy I've got hundreds of fresh water hours on my Excalibur but this was actually my first time in the ocean with it, so I don't know how much "expert" advice I'd be qualified to give you.
    In the water is where I truly like to be, and where I tried first, but there wasn't a lot of targets and the undertow was strong.
    My swimming skills are strong but I didn't want to get into a situation where I'd have to drop my gear to save my skin, so I erred on the side of caution and moved to the beach.
    I hunted the wet sand preferably at low tide and worked right in and out of the surf. (The wet sand will be very evident)
    I got some falsing on the transitions from dry & water and in the fast water but overall my Excal was surprisingly stable.
    I guess how you are able to hunt really depends on what you'll be using for a detector.

    Good Luck!

    You started out the year with some great finds. Gives me ambition to get out and find something myself.

    Great Au finds! Going on a cruise next month, did you have any problem getting your detector or gear on the ship?
