    All day in the water

    Got in the water yesterday at 8:00 am, put in a full day. I got out at noon for about an hour for lunch break, and then went from 1-5. Water has to be high 80s low 90s. Worked both tides at a new spot and never talked to another person all day. Just me in my little underwater world. Saw some fish and made friends with a stray dog. Ahhhhh....peace and quiet and a little underwater meditation. I've never been here before, but I think I got a virgin spot !! Although my jewelry finds wernt the heavy weights, at least there was a steady trickle. There are literally targets every few inches here in some areas. Fanning would often produce multiple targets. Perfect amount of current to keep the sediment from clouding up the spot. Drifting along fanning like mad in the nice clear water, perefect day off.Click image for larger version.

ID:	1489512 I found some wreckage about halfway down the beach this is lead sheathing from its bottom. There were timbers and lots of encrusted iron objects down deep here, including a rudder blade.Click image for larger version.

    Got 3 silver rings , a white gold heart earring in 14k, a yellow gold aerring in 14k, and part of another gold earring, and some other junk jewelry. Of coarse I had all the bottle caps pull tabs and other junk too. Im happy that I have a new spot. Im gonna slowly clean this spot up and I think there will be some better finds here. All the lead here sits on a clay layer just under the sand and cobble. That being said the gold will show when I get this place cleaned up a bit. Pretty big and forgotten swim beach. At least forgotton by metal detectorists.Click image for larger version.

    Turquoise and silver was fresh drop, it cleaned up real nice. White gold was marked QG 14k im not sure what QG means. Quality Gold ?? The yellow gold had the tinest 14k mark ive ever seen !! Gonna have to get with my TN buddy and clean this spot up !! Oh ya!! I also got three pocket knives. 2 I was able to salvage. One is a kershaw speed safe assited opener. After careful cleaning this baby is one of the nicest smoothest pocket knives ive ever owned. My new everday carry knife !!

    I like my avatar, but I'd rather have a rare coin I've found as an avatar, like you, instead of a crazy cat with a pomelo on the head. Good luck on the next hunt and please post your finds, I have the feeling it will be a good one.

    Well I paid the price for staying in the water all day. It appears that my rash guard/surf shirt had slipped up about 4 inches above my waist line exposing my plumbers crack to the broiling sun for 8 hours. Had to leave work early it hurt so bad. Pants and under ware rubing on severe sun burn is no good. Got a 4 inch strip of sunburn across my lower back/upper butt area. Talk about a wierd tan line !!
