Default Finally Got a Silver out of the Water Today

Beautiful day on the water. No wind and peaceful. Didn't find a lot but I finally found my first waterlogged silver ring. That makes two on land and one in the water so far this year. Gold is still hiding somewhere!

You never see it like this in the summer. Shore to shore boats and whitecaps. Even this time of year when the wind picks up it is crazy rough. So peaceful when it is like this. I love it. I will have to post a short video I took today. Well video is sideways for some reason and I see absolutely no way to rotate it

Now if only it was a bit warmer aye?
I like the sound of the shore to shore boats. Are they swiming and doing water sports? There's gold there for sure

Nobody is swimming yet. Water is 36.

Congrats on the silver but isn't supposed to be "one if by land and two if by sea"?

I hate finding two things water hunting, Felix pennies and shotgun shells... the pennies when they start to decompose sound good and the shotgun shells have that nice mid tone sound then when I bring up the scoop with mud and I see a bit of yellow only to see its that other scourge besides the Felix's its a let down...
