Long Beach – day two

9 Jul

I awoke today with great expectations. This was my first beach hunt ever. There was enough light at 6am to venture out onto the surf. At that time here, there were a few people on the beach, not counting the beach bums sleeping here and there.

I was expecting to see other detectorists but no one else was detecting. The beach was all mine. I began at the volleyball nets where I had seen quite a few people playing yesterday but I came up with nothing. Next I moved to the wet sand. Luckily for me, the Deus comes with a pre-loaded wet sand program. Here’s what I found:

The one thing in that picture that should blow your mind is that beaver tail pull tab. The fact that the tab has been missed since at least 1975 (the last year beaver tail tabs were put on cans) is not because hunters have been careless but more than likely is due to the fact that the beach is huge. There are a quadrillion square inches to be hunted.

So after a couple of hours I decided to call it and headed back to the hotel. On my way back, I picked as much money from the parking lots on the way as I dug up on the beach. And the number one lesson I learned today is:

DO NOT HUNT THE BEACH WITHOUT A SAND SCOOP!!!!

I hope there is a metal detecting shop somewhere near where I can pick one up for the next few days.

Thank you for stopping by.

      Thanks man. Unfortunately, I cut my foot yesterday at Huntington Beach and today the cut was starting to get infected so I treated it and now I can’t really go into the sand until it gets better. We went whale watching today and it was awesome. We saw some blue whales among others and dolphins and sea lions.
