    Double Gold Sunday

    Really have not been out to the beach much all year. Been spending my free time riding the mountain bike instead of digging for gold. After a few hours on the bike, it's a bit challenging to tell the wife I'm heading to the beach for another 3-4 hours so I had to devise a plan. My usual routine is to hit the beach very early (4AM) to beat the people but this conflicts with the "beat the heat and bike early" plan. I really dislike detecting with people on the beach for a variety of reasons but in order to preserve the marriage (lol), the revised plan is to drag the wife to the beach. She reads for an hour, runs for an hour, and then finds a bloody Mary for an hour while I clean up the beach. Great new plan lol.

    The few times I've been out have produced a ton of clad and a few silver here and there but gold has been slim pickings.....until yesterday. Scored these 2 14K (17G combined) at low tide but really high up the bank about 5 yards apart. 2 minutes after I scoop the yellow gold, an Asian tourist came over and started watching me. Real close (reason #1 I like empty beaches) and trying to see the screen on the CTX. I'm in a good mood since I just found gold so I humor him and show him the screen as I dig the next penny and quarter. Sure enough with him on my hip, the CTX lights up again with a very promising hit and in the scoop is the white gold ring. Pretty sure he hit the buy it now button on Amazon for a CTX after I showed him the yellow ring I had as well. If only he knew how many hours are spend digging pennies lol.

    Beautiful finds! I'm with you on the whole hunting with people on the beach thing. Between the kids wanting to see and then take everything you dig and for whatever reason the Asian folks that have no boundaries when it comes to personal space I usually head out as soon as the people start heading in.

    Mr. Redcobra.............Nice to see you getting a couple of solid finds!

    I also juggle my riding and detecting. I've raced bikes for years. Road bike workouts and metal detecting do not mix well for the legs

    Good looking pair of rings.

    We should have a few chances for some gold later this week.

    I saw the forecast for high surf. Iíll be out Thursday night to try my luck again at low tide. Going to hit the trail tomorrow night now that the heat is gone. I wish I had the nerve to get back on a road bike...some lady not paying attention cured me of that many years ago when she turned in front of me. Luckily only minor injuries but I stay on the trails from then on.

    Be safe and good luck this week.

    While MDing the beach last year, I had Asian tourists swarm around me and one actually leaned-down and picked something (ring) out of the hole I was still digging! They're worse than Sea gulls!
