Was another windy night last night, peaking at the same time as high tide so headed back. Long drive, although sand had dropped another 6" or so
Quick line of test holes down the beach showed a new area of about 50x20m where the bedding was only 200mm or less under the surface so got the waterproofs on and started gridding.
The watch was just under the surface, sitting on the clay - As you can imagine, it gave a decent ‘toot’ in the headset!!! Ears are still ringing LOL. Also pulled a '65 florin, blob of keys as well as the usual suspects.
Picked up another skinny gold, and a broken piece of 9ct - I only know this as it’s the bit with the stamp on it despite trawling the immediate area to death the other pieces eluded me. Probably light enough to be mobile in surf.
Favorite finds were two eyeballed pieces of fossilised wood. Haven’t found any proper stone wood fossils in NZ before.
Drying out and recharging everything for the final push somewhere else tomorrow.
