    Sometimes you do and sometimes you don't, then there's times you get some and an almost trophy.

    That was today in SC at the beaches of N Myrtle beach.

    My friend and I cleaned up some junk, got almost 1.00 between us and I landed a silver bangle type ear ring and a silver ring that was over a foot deep in the wet sand.

    Finding gold spoils ya.

    It had been in the wet sand so long, it had a black crust on it. Here it is after scraping and buffing. The whole ring was as black as the outer edges.

    Good gravy Bob, you are really racking up over there. Your hobby is paying for itself, while you are having a lot of fun. They still haven't dropped the water here so we can't get out there to that special place we want to yet. We are tickled for you buddy, congratulations on that great find.

    And this comment from someone who needs training wheels on their bowling ball.:lol:

    For all those that are bundled up this time of year, I was in shorts and short sleeve shirt. Winds were blowing hard though. Brought in some cooler weather for this morning. I might need a light jacket if I hit the beach again today.

    For school hunting, pick up a Garret Ace 250. It's a quality detector at bottom line price.

    Jim, you and Judy get ready to haul in the gold. Let me know when the water drops. I might just get up with you two, if the snow ain't flying.
