Default * 2019 - First Gold *

Even though conditions & tides are not ideal, I just had to get out today for a look!
I did find a small washout, which I pounded for around 2 hours.
Scored a few coins & the usual junk.
The highlight was this 9ct band and an old silver ring with what looks like an Amber stone.

Congrats on 2 fine looking rings! We're in a tie for gold so far! I'll try to keep up once you put the pedal to the metal.

Wow, Meggie,

Those are both quite beautiful rings! That Amber one is really something, and the detail on the 9ct, is gorgeous.

Fun finds, and congrats for getting on the gold board!
