2/12/15 Report - Beach Condition Photos Fort Pierce, Vero & Sebastian. Mystery Item.

Written by the TreasureGuide for the exclusive use of


One of these items was found in the Melborne area.  Another identical item was found in the Deerfield Beach area about six years ago.

It is made of lead.

If you have any ideas about what it is please let me know.


When I awoke this morning I was disappointed to see that the wind wasn't blowing much.  I went out to survey the treasure beaches along the Treasure Coast this morning. 

Turtle Trail is now open.  They dumped new sand on the dunes and in front of the dunes.  It seemed renourishment projects are in progress or were recently completed on many of the beaches from Vero to Sebastian.

Seagraph Trail was now closed, as was Wabasso.  Golden Sands and Treasure Shores were open.  Renourishment projects were completed there not too long ago.

They were working on the area by the old salvage camp north of the McLarty Museum.  The informal beach paths used by fisherman and others were ribboned off.

Also, a project is underway at South Jetty Park in Fort Pierce.

Waves Last Night Came Up Over The Berm At Douglass Beach.

Nice Size Waves At Douglass Beach But No Erosion.
Looks like the wind is blowing the tops off of those waves.

Looking South at Turtle Trail.

Looking North at Turtle Trail.
Notice in both of these pictures how they put new sand over the front of the dunes.  I think that contrary to the predictions, the waves were actually higher down along Hutchinson Island this morning.

Amber Sands Beach Looking North.
 In the above picture you can see that they covered the dunes like they did down at Turtle Trail.

Cut South of Amber Sands Beach Access.
Here is a cut maybe 50 or a hundred yards south of the access.  It was in renourishment sand.

Overall conditions failed to improve despite the higher waves we had last night.  The waves were parallel to the beach this morning, as was the case yesterday.

The waves all along the coast were breaking far out from the beach.  It looks like there is a lot of sand piled up just off-shore. 

Tomorrow the surf is supposed to begin decreasing.  Too bad.  I didn't see anything that would make me increase my beach detecting conditions rating today. 

Don't forget to send your thoughts on the mystery item.

Happy hunting,
