A penknife, two decimal 1ps, a George V penny, a George VI farthing, and a hawking bell.
A lovely day today so I thought to myself its a shame to waste it, so off detecting I went. Looking at what I found I would have been better off working in the garden or doing something else productive.
I know the saying a bad day's detecting is better than a good day in work, Also I know about all the fresh air and good exercise I've just had. But at the end of the day we go detecting hoping to find something good. Something we can really look at and think all those hours was worth it. I'm sure you know what I'm getting at, just that one good find that puts you in a really good mood for the rest of the day.
With the tides being wrong for me today I only had one option and that was to visit an old haunt of mine which I have done to death. Hoping that there was still something decent there to find, something I may have missed. As it turned out if there is still something decent to find there then I've missed it again. Its no good, I have to hold my hand up and admit I do get frustrated on these 'not much turned up' days like today.
Still, that's metal detecting for you. Does it put me off...does it 'eckers like. Already looking forward to my next detecting outing where ever that might be.
