We haven't really had time to go out metal detecting since the summer, but Cousin Steve did. He headed back to his parents house and found these goodies!!!!!!!!! We're so jealous as we were there before and didn't find anything like that. (SEE BLOG HERE). WAY TO GO STEVE!!!!

Well, it was that time of year again to take a day off work and head for a familiar swimming hole which brought us a lot of luck in the past. Last year, not so much since it was a cold and rainy summer. This year looked promising as we had a lot of hot days, surely it would pay off.
We got there nice and early, not another soul around. We quickly got started and a spot which normally paid off for us revealed NOTHING. Strange. We kept going along and nothing........... oh oh, I think someone else has been here before us. Finally, a nice sound coming through the headphones. We found a broken pair of sunglasses, bummer.
We kept going, found a penny here, a penny there.
Disappointing. As Bob went into deeper water I tought I'd play in the shallower water with the pinpointer. It started going off, it revealed a funky old earring full of stones. Bob called me over to him in deep water I couldn't stand in. Since he is over 6 feet tall, I just would swim down and do my digging while hanging on to his leg. We make a good team. The one hole produced a lot of change - nice!!
It started to get cold and after 2 hours Bob had to bail. I wanted to go over our hunt zone again and glad I did. I found a beatiful steel cross with a stone the middle.
So our final count was:
1 Steel Cross
1 small key
2 earrings (one hoop and one with stones)
1 pair of broken sunglasses (not shown)
$4.98 in change
