Hit the beach today for a few hours.

I had just over £13 plus 2 pre-decimal coins in the end with most of the coins coming out of the stream. Earring came out of the wet sand.

Hard work with all the iron in the stream but I used Beach 1 with the sensitivity dialled back to '16'.

I know after heavy rain the sand will wash away and leave the heavier coins behind, still hard and cold work today in the water.

...Doug.

You are hardcore Doug - respect! Bet you built up a good appetite with all that digging too. Hope you are nicely warm again with a full belly now too :D
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Thank you.

The plans we had with the family over Chritsmas had to be scrapped, we still have not seen our 9 month great granddaughter yet, so it was a day out by the seaside for my wife and I today. Although getting up at 7 am was a 'challenge' to hit the low tide. (outside temperature +2C)

Christmas lunch is now tomorrow.

Sorry to hear you’ve not met your great granddaughter yet, that is very sad. Enjoy your lunch tomorrow though and hope you get to see your family in some form, even if you can’t meet i person.

Well dug, Doug.
£13 off the beach is a good amount. may take a look in a week or so, when the schools return ( hopefully )
80mph winds due tonight, that must be a massive windchill.
Felt like i was freezing to death a couple of winters ago, when there was no inland and a storm came in with driving snow, nearly crawling along the sand to reach the car.
All the best for the New Year, :thumbsup:
Dave.

Many thanks Dave and the same to you for the New Year.

Looks like £13+.

Top right 2 pre decimal , decades ago the council would bulldoze the stream out towards the sea to stop the water from backing up upstream, this would bring a lot of pre decimal coins within range of the detector, not seen it done for years!

Nice day out Doug :thumbsup:

Is that a pineapple shaped item?
Back in the day they were considered a luxury and often things were made in the pineapple image to show your wealth
It doesnt look old though and is probably one of Pat Butchers danglers from Eastenders :lol:

I'm on the Burnham coast line....well when i say coastline i mean estuary coastline, very very muddy estuary coastline

We do get Blue sea occassionally, but the sun has to be shining, no clouds in sight, and the angle of your photography must take into account Pythagoras' Theorem to get the correct angle of the dangle so as to capture the reflection of the Blue sky onto the muddy waters here :lol: :lol:
