Default * High Tide Gold *

Have seen some great low tides these past few days,but like many others there was still too much sand to be able to reach those decent targets!

I finally scored today with this 9ct band,found up near the high tide mark .. weight 3.4 grams.

Nice shine you put on that band. Good job on checking the high tide line, and adding another fine piece of gold to your collection.
