|Emerald, Spike and Copper Finds.|
I didn't get around to posting many finds lately. Above are a few miscellaneous finds from December. On the piece of copper is a small emerald and a spike. There were some cobs found and other artifacts. I'll try to post some of those soon.
Yesterday afternoon I checked around and the beaches and those that I saw didn't look very good.
|Frederick Douglas Beach. Monday Afternoon.|
At the top of the slope in front of the cliff is a bunch of shells, many of which got covered by one of the two most recent high tides. You can see a new layer of sand just a few inches thick that washed up during a recent high tide. It partly covered many of the shells and some of the sea weed. Sometimes you can see signs of how a beach developed over a period of days. This is one of those cases.
Here is another important find by an amateur treasure hunter. Detectorists contribute a lot of important finds.

The hoard contains 186 coins, seven items of jewellery and 15 ingots of precious metal. The items include rare coins from era of King Alfred the Great (871-899) and King Ceolwulf II (874-79) when the kingdoms of Mercia and Wessex fought the invading 'Great Heathen Army' also known as the great Danish army, in the late 800's.(AP Photo/Alastair Grant)|

We're going to have several days of moderate surf ( mostly 2 - 4 foot) and southeast winds. That won't do much good. Still I'm encouraged about the rest of the winter. I think it looks promising.
