An Afternoon at SeaBreeze...

This afternoon we took our son to SeaBreeze Amusement Park, the weather was cloudy and cool but still a Great day of Smiles. At one of the rides 360 degrees, I was taking pictures of them on the ride after they finished and walked over to me I than spotted a couple of coins on the ground (a dime and 2 pennies). Later, before leaving I saw two girls bend down and pick up three coins, this was at the entrancce of the park.

Coin Shooting this morning at two parks...

This Morning I went Coin Shooting at two local parks, mainly checked out the Tot Lots. These places I have been to many times the last couple of years. The first park is next to my sisters house, when I got there I see that some changes have been made, part of the wooded area has been cut down and the park extended. The search here has produced .57 cents 3 dimes, 2 nickels and 17 pennies and a button. I searched for about an hour.


I then went to the second park, also searched for an hour. Did pretty good here, found $1.42 and a couple of buttons. Found this $1.00 coin which registered a strong quarter on my ACE 250, when I dug it was about 2 inches down next to the parking lot at first I thought it was a quarter but than saw that it was a little larger thats when I saw that it was a $1.00 coin. Than I got 2 quarters, 1 dime, 3 nickels and 7 pennies from this park.

This Morning, coin shooting at two schools...

This morning I went out coin shooting at two elementary schools, on the way to the first location it started to rain. I hoped that it would stop, was light with some fine drizzle was a while when it finally did stop. I didn't find a whole lot but didn't come out empty handed either, found .24 cents one dime, one nickel and 9 pennies. After here, I went to the second school here I did much better found $2.06 and a fancy button. It was 6 quarters, 4 dimes, 2 nickels and 6 pennies. As I was getting ready to stop for the day a young boy came over to me and asked if he could help me dig, I told himm that I was finished and getting ready to leave. He asked some questions so the two of talked for a short time.

Turned out to be a box covered in little shells with a yellow ribbon tied around it. When I got back to the car I opened up the mystery box, inside I found a rosary and some kind of plactic bag which that I thru out. The only thing from that I kept was the rosary. The box was wet and in poor shape so I tossed that too. Did find a lot of coins, also what looked like some type of clip, after I got home I took it apart and found that it had 2 dimes and 3 pennies.
