Default Mexico Beach Florida

I made a day trip to see my daughter and grand kids and made a quick two hour hunt as I passed by the beach. It is 3 1/2 hours each way so the family time is the main reason for the drive so I leave home about 5am and sneak in a short hunt when I first get there. It was just too beautiful to pass the white sand beach of the Gulf and not take a little walk. Targets were plentyful as spring break just ended but I just hunted the dry sand. I like the little silver toe ring, peace signs are really coming back.

Nice finds and beautiful beach. In my time, we called that the hippie chicken foot .... of course, we were sailors, and young. RickO

Beautiful sand, so inviting and that calm water! It's been so rough
down this way.

Congrats on the silver.
