Took a ride with Ringo yesterday to check out a couple of spots. The first beach was a joke- flat, soft sand and all fluff targets. The second one showed much more promise. There was a good section of exposed rocks and an area of bog. Targets were still scarce, more hot rocks than actual metal finds, but I was happy to get on the board with a 4 gram band. Ringo hit a nice flat button with shank and we both had minimal clad. This morning it was gusting to 50 mph so another long ride is the plan for today. I need to get friendly with some of the regular dog walkers so I can make a phone call for beach conditions. Think of the time and gas that could be saved.
