12/4/11 Report - So Far Rough Weekend Seas Have Disappointed

Written by the TreasureGuide for the exclusive use of

Two Treasure Coast Shipwreck Beaches Sunday Morning.

The photo above and on the left shows the beach at Frederick Douglas Park.   No cuts this morning.  It was actually better looking a couple of days ago. 

Of the beaches that I saw this morning, it looks like most of them.  I didn't see much evidence of erosion at all.  In fact some filling took place despite the rough seas.

The photo above and on the right shows one little cut.  It actually occurred a few days ago and the front filled in some since then.  That cut is one to two feet high.

Below is one area that if you just found it, looks pretty good.   However the most of that erosion occurred several days ago.   I showed a photo of it previously.  It did cut back a little further, but the front also filled in.   There was at least three feet of sand gone in front of that cliff before.

Overall, I didn't see enough improvment to raise my beach conditions rating from a one. 

It seems the water is hitting directly from the east again.  As you know, that usually doesn't help much.

There might be some places that I didn't see where the water got to the dunes.

Next Saturday is the St. Lucie detecting club holiday party at Bernie's house.  Bring your favorite dish.

Consign to Auction #11 (April 2012)

Our spring auction is already shaping up to be another blockbuster, with plenty of time still to include your consignments. The deadline is January 15, 2012, but consigning early has its advantages: We will display your special items at upcoming shows, we will spend more time researching and promoting your consignments, and we will give preference to earlier material in case of duplication. Click here for more information on how to consign.

Also keep in mind that for qualifying consignments WE WILL TRAVEL TO YOU to discuss and take delivery of your items. Cash advances are available as well. There is no better place than our auctions to sell TREASURE and COBS, and our service is second-to-none!

Overseas consignors must ship their consignments to us NOW to avoid delays from the holiday rush. Items received after the January 15 deadline might not be included in our spring sale.

Happy Hunting,
