Rained out in park

I did a bit of searching in the past 2 days, so today.. the sun was out and I Wanted to go but then also felt reluctant. The reason is the fact that you are not allowed to detect in my city plus you ‘should’ ask permission, as usual..

I went to the playground next to the park, thinking there have been plenty of people already in the weekends and maybe there is already some bling lying around. A tractor just went over the sand to loosen it, i think.
But the result was also the usual: OLD pulltabs !! THe big ones wher you can put in your whole finger and they are EVERYWHERE !

It started raining like crazy. NICE HORIZONTAL rain. My ski-clothing keeps all wind and rain out, as long as I’m with my back turned towards it. I only started feeling cold when I started walking around in the grass of the park. In half an hour, I dug up a nice french coin from 1950. At least it’s gold-colored :p THe 50-frank is also nice. I don’t find that often and usually they are very shiny, but this one isn’t. Pity the old currency is totally without value..

Lousy but with silver !

My new detecting friend made an aluminium shovel for me 😀
Such fun to be someone who can make everything !

So today the weather was horrible – rainy and windy all day. He wanted to go out and test the shovel so OK.. I put on my ski-clothing and went with him.
It took almost an hour to find a decent spot to search. Mostly we went through old muddy roads with lots of foil and garbage. Then we decided to head back to where a soccerfield used to be. Previous time we tested it and it gave two older rotten coins.

I found several pieces of crap and studs from shoes.. but then I finally lifted up a little silver cross.

Lots of mud but it was a good enough find to make my search worthwile.
