|Small Beach Emerald.|
Hope you had a great Easter. I didn't get out much. I did get out a little while. I did find this little piece of what appears to me to be emerald. It is on a penny for size comparison. It is not a quality emerald. Just a raw piece of opaque stone. I have found better and bigger emeralds at the same location in the past.
I didn't have as much luck with coins. I didn't hunt long enough to give it a good chance though.
|Broken Piece of Something.|
I did find this unidentifiable broken item. The scale is the same as the emerald above. It is small and encrusted. Have no idea what it might be.
|John Brooks Beach The Day Before Easter.|
Saturday I took a look at a couple of beaches and took a couple of pictures. This is what it looked like. Lots of seaweed. The beach in front of the cut was mushy.

|Another Beach The Day Before Easter.|
I took this picture at another beach I stopped at after John Brooks. The dunes were getting high. That is what I wanted to show, but it didn't show very well.
I also noticed Saturday that the heavy equipment was on the beach at Fort Pierce South Jetty Park. I didn't get to look around at enough beaches to give a good beach conditions rating.
|Horse Tooth Fossil|
My wife picked up this horse tooth fossil on a Treasure Coast beach last week sometime while she was collecting shells. It does show that you can find some really old stuff.
|Peahen On Roof.|
I just found out last week that our President's grandfather, who emigrated to the United States when he was 16, later made his money operating a restaurant and boarding house in a mining town during the Klondike Gold Rush. That is what Wikipedia says.
Here is an another article about that.
The surf will decrease today and for the next few days.
