    Started out with a good friend of mine to the opposite side of Florida on Wednesday. We were going to go find some pirate treasure! We arrived to a beautiful night on the beach, we settled in to a hotel close buy and hit the beach with our lights beaming. Hunted from dusk to 1am or so with no luck.
    The next morning we moved south a little ways down, with the same out come. Friday rolled around further down the coast with soar feet from miles of coast line still nothing! Saturday, smsh! Still nothing! So we decided to head for home. The treasure coast is a beautiful place full of treasure hunters searching for the same dreams. If you get the chance to go it is a awesome experience, but here is a word to the wise, it will kick your but and send you home wondering what if! Got home Saturday night,Sunday morning went out to a local beach near the house and found a ring within tem minutes! LOL!

    It just goes to show everyone knows their local beaches.
    Now that looks like a fine wedding ring, well done Luckey.

    I've hunted those beaches and no luck for me either but in my minds eye I could see those Spanish sailors washed ashore in the wreckage with hostile natives waiting to pick off the survivors, treasure usually has a story to go with it as valuable as the treasure itself. :)

    Reading a pile about those wrecks the Natives were little to no problems. Mosquito's were the issue.

    It's not hard to sit on the beach dunes as I did quite often and gaze at the crashing waves, just thinking that pirates and sailors looked over the same as their ships rolled in the surf. Just imagine it! There were cannons recovered justvyards from sure.
