Default Beautiful Day at Waukegan Beach

Probably the last hot day we will have this year, so I went to the Beach!


I stayed entirely in the water and with waves 1to3 feet is was tough sometimes to keep from losing my balance. I darn near jumpd when I saw that chain, but then saw it was plated.


But still found One Silver Ring and a small gold ring.

It's always a good thing to find a gold ring that fits!

Nice captures. Gold and silver on the same hunt is always a good sign.

I hit the water again yesterday, but didn't find any more gold or silver. Maybe next year.
