    Ahhhhhhhhh...winter Gold!

    I haven't been out swinging my detector since I found those 6 large cents in one day. Snow and cold weather set in big time. I was talking to someone from the water department the other day and he said the frost is down 18". I was going stir crazy and wanted to go out detecting so I thought about the beaches about an hour away. I have at least a dozen beaches on the north side of LI Sound from NY to CT. I checked the tides the night before and saw there were a number of nice minus tides in the early a.m. I must say I rarely go to the beach with my detector. I woke up and saw it was a balmy 34 degrees with temps supposed to hit 50 and figured it's time to go. I picked out one of the beaches and off I went. Hit the wet sand and after about an hour low and behold, out pops a nice high school ring in 10k. It was a smaller girls ring, but still weighed in at 8 grams. I guess I'm going to be spending more time at the beach.

    I have had some luck this season on the south shore beaches. I've been thinking about trying the north shore. Very nice ring. Are you going to try and locate its owner?

    Claire, It's from Saint Raymond's Academy. Unfortunately there is no name or initials engraved on the ring. I was thinking about calling the school to see if anyone reported loosing a ring.

    you guys on the beaches really make me jealous because the only beaches here are on the lakes and all I ever find are pull tabs, cans and clad.
