Old soccer field

My friend told me about an abandoned soccer field in a city half an hour from here.
I googled it and it was occupied from late 60’s till 2011. It’s in the midst of nature and hilly area and on a Sunday, that means LOTS of people going around. But luckily no one came near the soccer field itself. So my friend and my dog were lying for a few hours in the superb sun and nature, and I tried to find a gold ring with metal detector.. nothing much came out of it.
A few eurocoins (mostly 10-20 cents :p). One hole held 6 coins.
Found an old Dutch coin and some Belgian ones.

Today I drove to the farm that is being renovated. People had given me permission via facebook to come detect in their pasture and garden. Turned out to be a total disappointment. The grass was 40 cm high at least. Two kids were hanging around me and taking my shovel and tools. All garden was infested with big pieces of metal. Didn’t find one half-decent thing.. And teh soil was superdry.

Sportspark and ring

Didn’t really know where to go on a sunny Saturday morning.. since people are going to be around a lot now with the nice weather..
So I got into the car and went to a sportspark 20 minutes from home. I saw it once when practicing with someone’s parking skills.
There’s a volleyball field with sand and the previous one gave a good result, but that was in a bigger city.

No one was around at first 🙂
I tried the playground with the wood floor. Weirdly enough, i got an old musket ball or two out of that. Some coins.
Then the grass next to the volleyball field where people supposedly put their bags and clothes gave some more.
Inside sand of volleyball field was NOTHING. Dammit.
Then I proceeded to the last part where there are a lot of wooden exercise machines. There’s a bit of a small hill, like 3 meters wide where I guessed teenagers would come and sit. And yes, I searched all around the foot and found a splendid ring ! But no stamps on it and a little bit of research on internet tells me it’s made of inox and worth 9 euro. But it looks really sophisticated. Next time better..

I drove to the next city where there’s a splendid old park near the center. I figured it was a good soil with people lying around already from early Spring. But didn’t find much there actually. Two euro and a button with 2 crossed canonpipes or something..
