What day can you pick me up at the airport? I can fly anytime!!

Awesome beach you have to play at. You are doing quite well. Anyone else plundering where you are or do you have them all to yourself?

Nice going.

Their only small beaches & only a few others detecting occasionally but usually, it's very quiet.
Being retired I can choose to go whenever I wish, which makes it good for me.

Well done! Those heart rings must be quite popular, I've found a few as well. Have you ever come across Darren Barnes from youtube? He finds a lot of gold rings in QLD as well.

Yes, those little heart rings are still popular both in silver & gold.
And yes I am familiar with Darren Barnes, our paths have crossed in the past on another forum
