After I butchered the cross, I circled the wagons looking for the chain.
Nothing. So I continued to hunt for another 1-2 hours. I was hunting the crest of a hump that forms when sand starts coming back in after a storm. I found out years ago, coins and jewelry tend to get trapped at the crest.
On my return, I decided to hunt the ocean side of the mound. Not 5 minutes before leaving the beach, I spot something laying on the surface just at waters edge. I couldnt believe what I was seeing. The matching chain to the cross. I know it matches because the bail has the same CZ's as the cross.
Now, both items were in the same general area but how did the chain end up on the surface ?????
Oh Lucky Me !!!!
