It was a blower. Winds were about 20mph. I took it for a swim though looking for the gold.

it happens, but not as often as back in the 70's. knew an old man back in mid 70's who had a route of Atlanta bars that he checked early sat and sun mornings and he cleared $200 - $300 in two days in bills that spilled out of pockets when guys were fishing for their car keys.

Strip clubs were the best.

congrats

I went to Kiva beach in the morning with the dogs. It was absolutely packed. Zephyr, where I found the $100 looked like 4th of July weekend. People ignoring the no parking signs and multiple officers issuing tickets. I go to zephyr early in the morning or just before sundown. Otherwise you canít maneuver through the crowds. The Covid scare isnít working. The $100 probably came from one of the many drunks that had to be carried off the beach before sundown.

Nice score! My biggest bill was a $50 lying on a walkway at Disney Springs.
