    Yesterday it was a driftwood stick....I forgot my digger !! Normally I like a claw hammer, or a 3 pronged garden tool....its against the law to cut or damage the mangroves so its careful digging under and around roots. I hunt the areas that mother nature naturally exposes through tides, wind, and waves....my target area was un detectable due downed trees, sea weed, and fresh undergrowth. The shore line is in constant change here...so I found this spot by accident while prospecting for new ground !!

    Im not sure ? Brand new spot roger. Possible old settlers spot....maybe a wrecker salvage camp....maybe a shipwreck survivors spot ?? Maybe all of those have happened here. Nice to find new ground !!
