Gold, Diamonds and Cash This Month
I took the metal detector out seven times and was able to come up with 213 coins that way. It has been hot, hot, hot this Summer, though, and the ground is pretty well baked dry, so I've had to hunt in playgrounds for the most part, and only for short periods due to the heat. I was able to hunt along an ocean beach last week, and was lucky enough to find a 3-stone diamond necklace in the dry sand. That was a nice find and made the hunt. The Ace 250 detector is pretty limited on the beach, though, it gives a lot of false signals on the wet sand, so I had to stay up on the dry sand. I still was able to find quite a few coins and clean up a lot of pulltabs off the beach.
Next week is the annual Shenandoah County 43-mile long yard sale. We will be attending for the 3rd year in a row. It's a lot of fun and great treasure hunting. I will take some pics and write a post here on our adventures. Keep hunting!
