Happy Birthday Matt

Thanks Skip! Had to work but got back from a week trip to Maui the day before my birthday. My son and I took over an Equinox and had a great time detecting the beaches. We didn't get anything big, but found a small beach erosion spot and got a couple hundred coins, a small sterling silver ring, a bunch of fishing weights, and a handful of pull tabs.

Way to go matt! How thin and eroded were the coins, especially the dimes and clads? I used to hit the beaches after summer holidays; all up and down the L.A. (Malibu, Zuma) Ventura, and Santa Barbara coasts. Also, after those big "pine apple express" storms would pass through that area.

Made a lot of very worn finds, and occasionally, a nice piece of jewelry near the volley ball nets, around the life guard towers, and once was able to help a distraught newlywed find his lost diamond encrusted wedding ring and almost got a kiss from the bride! I was more that happy with a beer as a consolation prize. The amount of lost parking meter quarters was often the biggest payoff at Redondo and Huntington beaches, and of course the time honored ritual of sea nymph gazing made for for good times indeed!
