Went to Blue river again and met my son there. It is a pretty long drive [around 300 miles] but the chance to see my son makes it all worthwhile. I did not realize just how far it was and kept wondering if I had somehow missed the turnoff. Eventually I found the place and in we went. Found our son there and got suited up. He went to one diving board, I to the other and we had at the bottom with the blasters.

We did keep finding a large quantity of money with the odd item of jewelry thrown in for good measure. I killed two tanks before I decided to put all my effort into one area rather than blow all over. I donned my third [and last tank I had with me that day] and hit one area under a dive board. The area was approximately a picnic table size.

Once I got through the semi-hard mud bottom, things really started to show up. At days end, we had over $80.00 in change, 9 watches [of which these four are the best, 14 sunglasses [all junk except this one], one gold chain, 3 silver chains 12 earrings [gold and silver] and a determination to come back, possibly this year] to really hit it hard in one area.



Interesting thing about one one of the watches. The yellow faced one [a Nixon] has the days of the week in either Spanish or Italian. Hard to tell when only three letters show. The others are a Rip Curl [a surfers watch] a Cardinal and a Tag Heuer. The sunglasses, while ugly, are Smiths... made in France and retailing for around $175.00. The gold chain is 14k.

Next time... even more. :):

Do those watches still work and can they be cleaned up where they can be worn again? I think this is a neat way to treasure hunt. Enjoyed the story, thanks for posting it. Please have a great day! Kelley (Texas) :)

The Nixon is the more unusual of them all due to the language thing.

That scoot sweeper mode works very well for you Mikie. You got the spots, the gear, now you just need the time. Got to be some high end jewelry there somewhere. I wish I could say I've been in the water this year, but like you, limited time right now. This has been a nice week with 3 days in the 90's so folks were out. If we get a cool one or windy or rain, I will make time to hit a couple of fresh water swimming beaches that get used. Nice collection of watches there. That Nixon one sounds real interesting.

Good Job....

Looking forward to trying again.. Today... well, we did basil, spinach,peas, and beans. Tomorrow.. rhubarb, carrots,corn oregano and probably thyme.

Sometimes this retirement is not all it is cracked up to be. :):

but like you said, being with my son was the best of all.

I start most days with 1/2 hour to an hour of beach hunting and as soon as the tide etc allow I want to spend a lot more time with the Whites DF I mentioned in the other post on this page.

That's about it until cooler weather sets in.

The nice thing about diving is that it is a nice break from the heat!

CJ
