Other Metal Detecting Outings:  2015,   2013,   2011,   2008

Bob - If you ever wanted to be...

A Treasure Hunter, you know, one of those Geeky looking people on the beaches with headphones on, swinging a metal detector back n forth for what looks like hours.  Well, here what you can find in about 12 hour's of hunting after a big storm blows through...    :)  lol

Here’s a summary of my hunting.

These are the results from a Thursday and Saturday evening, and a Sunday morning.  I spend about 2 to 3 hours detecting each time out.

I'll start with the Junk...  lol...   Woops Today's Dawn, Sunday Morning....  A pretty nice one.
