    Holiday hunt.. 2 silvers and an 2 aching bodies

    Well I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving Holiday. Its a great opportunity to get together with friends and family for a few hours. Since I have the weekend off, Patty and I decided to skip the usual Black Friday shopping and out to go hunting instead.

    We would rather fight the waves instead of the crowds and mall traffic. So we opted to take an hour drive down south hoping the front that passed through might calm down... it didn't.

    Ran into some other hunters, 1 from Jersey and Gary from the area. Pleasure to meet you Gary. Keep at it, the tagets are definitely out there, and with all that wave action more being uncovered as we speak ( Lots of depositers over there too).

    Waves were brutal, it seemed every spot we walked to there was a 5' wave just waiting to slam us, and the current was so strong you could barely walk backwards against it. Patty and I got knocked for a loop a few times, knocked the headphones right off.

    I had some really nice signals that I just had to pass up because the waves were so close together, but I did manage to pull up these 2 goodies.

    The ring is a size 13 and weights in at 22 grams.

    The cross and chain are marked .925 and weighed in at a whopping 54 grams. I cant find any markings on the ring, but there's still alot of black that needs to come off. As for the chain, It needs a serious ultrasonic cleaning to get off all the tarnish. I'm not sure of the stones, don't test real for diamonds, but looks real clean, the yellow might be a citrine.
