    Well, I couldn't have picked a worst week to hit the beach The wind during the early part of the week of the 19th was crazy strong along the treasure coast. Add the temp in the low 50's during the day made for a challenge. I got out to south of the Vero beach area on Tuesday and swung the detector for about 2.5 hours during the morning low tide but the surf was really kicked up by the wind. At times I felt like I was being sand blasted.

    On a positive note, my family got me wireless headphones for my AT PRO at Christmas so this was a great time to test them out. They worked perfect and no cord to tangle when I was digging signals.

    Despite the weather issues, I had a great time on the beach searching the high tide line at low tide. No great finds but I did locate some very interesting iron pieces. While they have no value I thing they'll make a nice addition to my conversation tray. Coins only totaled $3.40 so my afternoon coffee was a wash.

    I'll be heading down to Weston at the end of March so I'll be planning some searching north of Ft Lauderdale that week. Hopefully the spring weather will be more kind and with more tourism that time of the year hopefully a few more coins, and if I'm lucky a ring or two, will find their way into my pouch.

    Thanks again for the advice.
