Default Hopping on board the 2017 gold train!

Found my first gold ring of 2017 today.

This may be the only time that I can say I have found twice as much gold as OBN so far in 2017!

I'm looking forward to the waves this week but not the cold! Hate the cold!

I can't make out the name of the saint on the charm. Can anyone make it out? Never saw that one before.

Congrats on the very nice looking ring.

Barb, is your pendant silver or aluminum? Very nice gold ring.

LOL I don't think many people will beat OBN! Congrats on getting ahead of him.

Congrats on the early yellow start! I love finding Euro coins since I'm expecting to use them again this summer. It seems we're undergoing a Russian invasion down here.

Nice ring! Stupid looking though?...Easy to see how it could be lost easily! Those open filligree ones dont sound like a normal solid band to me, a tougher target to get a bead on...so good hit there Kap!

I like the weird ones but wouldn't wear it. Though it fit, which is rare for me usually they are too small.

I believe it's aluminum. Definitely not silver.

Mine did! That was a bad idea! And I had on water shoes, thin ones. Today I'm wearing sneakers, no water, and a couple pairs of socks! Freezing here.

It shines nice especially when it was in the hole.

Yep it sounded weird. I thought I was maybe digging a tiny broken piece of soda can.
