Time to go detecting….
I’ve been looking for another sand scoop for a long time. At the beginning of this week, a local group member offered one for sale. I bought the scoop with the intention of using it immediately. I couldn’t wait to get to the beach and give the Evolution scoop, which is reputed to be particularly wonderful, a try.
After loading the Evolution scoop and the XP Deus 2 metal detector into the day van, I made the decision to leave Helston and travel down to Longrock beach to try it out.
I’m not a huge fan of this beach because it tends to produce a lot of trash and attract a lot of visitors and dog walkers. Upon arrival to the beach car park i got stuck waiting for a train to pass arriving back into Penzance station.
Today was a magnificent, dry day, but the wind was really strong and made it tough to walk against. Nevertheless, Polo and I ventured out in the hopes of finding some jewellery and coins. Let’s explore what may be lurking in all this sand.
Here we go…
Our first indication was a beautiful silver earring with the 925 hallmark; I’m not sure of their precise date, but I don’t think they’re that ancient. What a start to the day.
Unfortunately, my luck did not last. I had a few fishing leads, someone’s beard bead or ear stretcher, and a bizarre looking threaded brass thing and that was it.
Obviously i had to get a cheeky picture of todays finds on one of our club finds mats. These are available to purchase in our store, please click here to buy one 🙂
I decided to return to the van after another hour or two of walking with no additional indications. I had to cross a small stream on the way back, and disaster struck! My wellington boot had leaked and my sock had been soaked! No idea how this happened, time for a new pair.
Good day, love the silver find, The Deus 2 and scoop performed perfectly! Shame my wellies didn’t perform as well 🤣
