Beach Hunting

I figured if I wanted to get VT Mining off and running strong this year, I would need more gold items. I decided to take a trip down to Huntington Beach for some beach hunting. I was very hopeful with the research and planning I did but the trip was pretty unsuccessful. It was the first real set back of the year. Special thanks to Jordan Bastian for allowing me to sleep on his couch.

Stopped in at Laguna Beach which was a lovely little town to detect.

Total findings for the trip. The chain is not gold and it was a real bummer. I did find a wheat penny from 1955 that was about 2 feet down in the sand.

 Here is what to expect on the beach. I found a lot of hair pins, bottle caps, and nails to name a few.
