I was in Perth the other day and decided to hit the beach for a few hours of metal detecting. The night before a big storm front came through so I knew I would have a good chance of finding some jewellery and coins.
I decided to go to Sorrento Beach, because I had been there before doing a search for a guys lost wedding ring, but unfortunately could not find it, so I go back to the beach, hoping I still may find it by some miraculous chance.
Anyhow, I found plenty of coins and a few pieces of jewellery including a small silver toe ring.
Another beautiful day here today, but I forced myself to do some household chores today, washing clothes, watering plants, gardening, and preparing a wooden Jarrah Walkway I am building in my garden this weekend … can’t wait!
After I did all my jobs around the house today, I thought stuff it! I might as well go and do some more metal detecting, seeing as though I had been every day for the last 3 weeks, I might as well do it one more time… and then I am having a break for a few days.
I rang up a local farmer today to see if I could go and do some metal detecting around one of my favourite old abanoned houses in the district, and his wife answered and she said no problems, so I was pretty happy about that.
The old brick house above is 300 metres from the house I went detecting at today, owned by the same family.
I only had around an hour to detect before the sun went down, so off I went.
As usual … alot of these old house I go to have corrogated sheets of roofing tin laying around the house, due to being blown off the roof by strong wind and storms, and I find this really frustrating, because alot of it is buried, and you have to be careful moving the tin, due to the risk of being bitten by a deadly snake, which may be hiding or living under the tin, and obviously besides being bitten, you are disturbing it’s home, or another animals home, and that’s not the best thing to do.
In an hour of detecting I only found a couple of things worth keeping… enjoy the pics!
I have previously tried other methods, such as electrolysis and also coin tumbling in which I found that electrolysis works well only on silver coins and coin tumbling should only be done by experts, and I learnt that I am definitely not an expert.
