Default ** Putting in the Hours- Gold #11 **

I have been meaning to visit this beach for a while and today was the day.
Over four hours I walked for miles, plenty of targets though to keep me busy.
Nice mixed bag today, including a silver ring, the best was another 9ct band, weight 4 grams.
It was a little cooler too, @ 85°F.
You have to put in the time .. that's 17 beach hunts out of 20 so far this year!

And the gold juggernaut continues! Since I've never found one I wouldn't mind finding a 9K ring one day.
