Default 59, 925 heart and some Oakleys

Hit the lake before picking up my son from school. Only had about 20 minutes but better than nothing!

Found a 925 heart with "diamonds" marked 925 Jan Thai.

Found a junk jewelry piece, then saw the sunglasses bobbing in the water. Usually the sunglasses I find are beat to heck and not salvageable. Wasn't sure with these but they cleaned up nicely.

Oakley polarized. Not a big fan of the gold colored "O"'s on them but they're replaceable I see online. Maybe I'll wear the gold O's and it'll bring me some gold luck

First pair of usable sunglasses that I'll actually wear (I did find a pair of Jimmy Choo's I gave my wife earlier in the year).

Come on gold! Show yourself!

Happy hunting!

Sounds like a successful hunt especially for only 20 mins

Hell I walked 3 miles of beach on Monday and only found a new stainless fork and a full bottle of Banana Boat Sunscreen and thought that was a success

Your lake hunt is better than any of my Gulf hunts lately.
I have yet to find a piece of 925 marked Thai that didn't stick to a magnet, but I did get some good sticks from Thai many years ago....with that said, Congrats on the heart and Oakley's.

Most, if not all, Oakleys retail for over $100 so a 20 minute hunt means you averaged over $300/hour. Congrats!

Not bad GS. You even found lunch. It looks a little small to clean but nice.

Your 20 min hunt was better than my 2 hour hunt. Those glasses are a great bonus. Congrats
