I know you have all heard about the shooting, but I have to take time to mention it.  A lot of things in life don't really matter much, and you have to stop and put things in perspective once in a while.  While things are going well for you, remember that there is always tragedy somewhere.  Stop and think of those in need from time to time.  Maybe you can do or say something that really makes a difference.  And count your blessings.

I wouldn't be surprised if this tragedy leads to tighter gun regulation.  And I would suspect that threat will lead to higher gun sales in the mean time.  

According to an email  that I received from the Fisher organization that I received, a couple of investors  recently recovered 10 silver coins, an iron spike, an encrusted silver artifact and several barrel hoops when they hunted on the Atocha site with Captain Andy and crew of the JB Magruder crew on the Atocha site.  Investors are allowed to go out and dive with the crews and keep some of their finds.

Millions of dollars worth of gold coins was found in the home of  a deceased hermit in Carson City, Nevada.

As in times past, there have been those who hoard gold and coins and sometimes bury or hide them.

A couple of days ago I mentioned the Meteorite Men using Pulse Star detectors.  In case you haven't seen one of those, here is a picture of one being used from the Kellyco catalog.

I have seen these being used on Treasure Coast beaches, both lately and years ago.

The wind is from the east this morning on the Treasure Coast and the surf is around 4 - 6 feet.   Later today expect something more like 3 - 5 feet, then decreasing further down to around `1 -2 feet towards the middle of next week.

A little coolness in the air makes daytime detecting a lot more comfortable than the summer heat that we are used to.

I've been busy and haven't had a chance to check the beaches for a couple of days.  I'll try to take a look sometime soon and get back here with a report.

Low tide this afternoon will be around 3:30 PM.

Happy hunting,
