For beginners, I recommend not spending too much money. Don't get a detector with a lot of different features and complicated controls.
Don't start in the water. Try something easy at first, like the dry sand on the beach.
After you gain some experience and find out what you like and don't like, and how much time you are going to put into the hobby, then if you really get bitten by the bug, think about spending more money on a detector that will really suit you. Trade in your first detector, or keep it as a back up.
Although it costs more, a water proof detector can come in handy even if you don't plan to detect in the water. Things happen.
There are ways to cover your detector to protect it from rain etc., but it is more convenient to have a detector that you don't have to worry about getting wet.
Anyhow, my main point is don't spend too much on a first detector. What brand doesn't much matter for a first detector, but I would recommend sticking with one of the major manufacturer
Mail order is fine, but for a first detector you might want to go somewhere where someone will demonstrate various detectors and show you how to set the controls. It just saves a little time and makes things a little easier.
A real treasure trove was found in a secret safe under the floor of an old farmhouse when the family was cleaning the house for sale. A strange block of concrete in the floor of a closet below a staircase betrayed the presence of the secret safe. (See photo above.)
Here is the link to that story.

The spheres range in size, have a core of clay and are covered with pyrite. No body seems to know their purpose.
Maybe you can figure it out.

If you always wanted to be a pirate, you missed a good opportunity today. Disneyworld casting held auditions for "face talent" today, including characters such as Jack Sparrow. Sign-in was 9 - 10 AM.
On the Treasure Coast we had rain and lightening along the coast from early morning until nearly noon. I don't mind the rain, but I don't like the lightening.
The surf is about 3 - 5 feet today. The wind is out of the southeast.
The surf will increase to around 4 - 6 feet by Saturday and then decrease again.
I'd certainly take a good northeaster, but I might have to settle for a good low tide and low surf. That would be my second choice.
The tidal variations aren't big today. Low tide is between eight and nine.
