Written by the TreasureGuide for the exclusive use of treasurebeachesreport.blogspot.com.Yesterday I had what I would call a very good post for you. Scott's story illustrates the kind of thing we all like about metal detecting. I enjoyed it very much because it is the kind of thing we all can relate to.
After discussing the cache some more with both Darrel and Scott, it appears that there might have been some confusion. It is looking like there could possibly have been two different Bobs and two different caches. There are details that match and detail that don't. It sounds like there are two different Bobs. And there are two different locations given by the different reports. Yet the two independent descriptions of the cache are extremely similar, including the type and number of cobs. It would be very interesting if there were two very similar caches found at the base of the eroded dunes at two different beaches. (I don't have permission to give the one location.) That would bring up some questions.
This confusion does not diminish the value or interest of Scott's and Darrel's accounts. It actually makes the story all the more intriguing. Think about it. Two different caches composed of a very similar number of exceptionally nice 8-reales, both found at the base of newly eroded dunes.
It is just the nature of treasure stories to leave some unanswered questions.
Thanks to both Scott and Darrel for their stimulating accounts.
The second has a lower chance of becoming a cyclone real soon, but the projected path for it comes closer to Florida. It is about five days away. We'll have to wait to see where it actually goes.
The newest has a strong chance of becoming a cyclone in the next couple of days, but is expected to head north into the North Atlantic.
The nine to fourteen foot surf prediction disappeared in a hurry. Now it is nothing like that.
