Default Out of the Hospital so made fast tracks to the beach with the detector

After being in the hospital again for two weeks I couldn't wait to get out at sunrise to try my luck at the beach. It was a busy weekend down there so I decided to hit it. Found the usual clad and one of those half-dollar sized president coins (anyone know who put this one out?) and also a Phillippines 50 sentimo coin. No silver or jewelry this time but it sure felt good to be outside seeing the nice sunrise and no beeping medical machines, lol.

Looks like you had fun, glad to hear you're out and about! It's amazing how fast a person can get back out there after being locked up in a hospital, makes you just want to run amok! Last time it happened to me I was point hunting, stopped long enough to get treated then right back out to my site

Glad to hear you are out friend. I've been out from the hospital 4 weeks tomorrow and I know what you are feeling. I'm almost ready to get back to detecting. Great pics and thanks for sharing.

Glad you had fun. Nice photos also. Wished I could have taken my detector to the Bahamas when I went a few weeks ago but we weren't checking any baggage.

Glad you are up and around and also out there swinging. It is very good therapy BUT don't overdo it (if that is even possible in detecting LOL!)

Good Job of getting out and beachsweeping! Great Pics of Lake Mich! Tis the season...tough duty though, slogging all those miles of sand! ...probably good for you right?

Thanks everyone!

Yeah, a few bumps in the road from last year's surgery but we're gettin' back at it. Hope to do some bottledigging soon too.
