Default New Excal and beach finds

I can tell ya I'm going to like this new Excal. Bought it for the purpose of hitting more beaches and lakes this summer as our ground is getting tougher to dig in without leaving a mark. I like my 3030 at the beach but LOVE the tones and weight of this Excal. Little colbalt ring with sapphire today along with a bunch of change and my local Fox. No gold but did run some test on my wedding band and it sure sings purty.

Nice ring, that cobalt is pretty! You get cute foxes, we got a straggly looking coyote yesterday while out a'hunting. We're doing something wrong

Nice ring Mike. Mike is the best ctx swinger I know. If he gets as good with his excal as he is with his ctx, all us water/beach hunters in Wi will not be happy. Seriously Mike, congrats on your first excal ring and may there be many many more. Just go south. Lol

PJ, its been a rough month with work...etc. But that post literally made me Laugh out Loud. Your the best PJ and I appreciate the kind words and guidance you gave me this AM on the Excal. I hope to get with you soon and hit the beaches. Hope to learn from the best!!
