    Change for a Dollar with a Penny to Spare

    Another day in the water at one of my favorite old spots. Used the Equinox this time. Boy, I dislike how quiet it is with headphones. Getting used to it a little but it really is a pain.

    I will say one thing. I need 6 - 8" of gravel and muck to just dissapear here. I know there are very deep targets out there. In one spot I got a nice tone. Dug and dug and found the wheat cent. Dug further because there was a whisper of a high tone still and got the quarter. Then got the dime and the half. By the time I was done, I had a hole about 2' around and over a foot deep.

    My only good silver finds were the 1929 half, 1942 quarter and a 47 and 54 rosey. Buffalo is a nice shape 1934. Wheat is a 45.

    That ball of foil is not aluminum foil. Way too heavy. I thought is was a rock covered with foil but not. I am guessing it has a lot of lead in it. I thought that was strange. I think this is the first time I have ever found just the top of a Zippo with the rest not in sight.

    Glad I now dive with a Garrett Carrot. Some of these small targets are very hard to locate after you get them out of the hole.











    Please leave a ring after the beep. Thank You.

    Hey scuba, how deep have you had that carrot? Or were you just in the surf?

    Nice coins Scuba. I still like all of those tags that you find. You must have one heck of a display (or shoe box full) of them by now.

    Me surf? NOT a chance. I am anywhere between 6 and 10' deep in this river. With the carrot and the Equinox.

    I have over 450 in a box right now. I gave over 50 away. They were used every summer from 1909 - 1963 and the beach house could hold over 6000 men and women. The waders also have hundreds. I don't go into wading territory when I dive here.

    The waders have really hammered this spot. I doubt if there is much to find anyway. 90% of the time I go where waders can't, 100% of the time I do here. That is how I excel. This is the beach in 1917



    The tower was in wading water. The footings of it are in 9 foot of water now. I know exactly where it was. No need to play where waders can hit. So much out deep I can never get it all.

    I can't wait to do this stuff. I'm in the process of certifying but I may try a spot this weekend while I'm at the beach with the kids...won't be a risk because it isn't any deeper than 10 feet and is a pool created by a jetty.

    Retired life has it's perks! That and no spouse gives me a lot of freedom. However tomorrow I am picking up two of my grandsons at the airport for 10 days. 12 and 13. Might not be able to dive where I want to but I will be out there!
