                         Good afternoon boys and girls, I trust that you are all well and fit enough to
            swing a decent machine and coil o'er land n beach. Got our ten year old grandson
            visiting next Saturday and hopefully he will help me un-mothball my detecting gear
            ready for the season.

                          I'm going to check with one of my permissions and see if we can have access
            for an afternoons detecting but was wondering if a spot of beach detecting would be
            better. What would the chances be for slipping over the Welsh border and trying
           Talacre? Any ideas folks?

                              Thanks Doc,
                                                     just heard that on the news this morning; free to enter and
                               exit Wales from, as you pointed out, April 12th. I will wait until the 13th;
                               I would hate to set our grandson a bad example by breaking the law.

Hi Richie; just the man I have been thinking about.

Since we last detected together I have had a couple of emails that looked like they had come from you but my security system flagged up that the emails were dangerous and they got binned. If you would like to pm me your present email address I will drop you a line.

Of course, me n the Mrs have been virus dodging for well over a year now but hopefully we should be getting back to normal soon; whatever normal might be!

Did you go in the end?

At least the weather has been kind - and hopefully all the Covid metrics will remain in the lower side of things so we can continue to return to normal Smiley

                   We did eventually make it down to North Wales and shacked up there for a whole week; with two acre of paddocks to get a spade into and even put in four hours on Talacre Sands, before a big tide chased me off the beach and up against the dunes.

                   The Safari performed well on the sands and I was able to avoid loads of scrap and netted  2.10 in decimal coins, an old Eddy penny, and one threepenny bit. There was also one 2" copper boat nail and a couple of bits of 50 cal copper jackets, that fooled both the Safari and my self into reading them as coins.

                    The paddocks were a completely different story and were filled with loads of rusting iron that fooled both the Safari and the Quest Q40 into giving off good signals but I did manage to wheedle out two very well worn and greened George III coins but I gave both to the owners, along with a nice big shiny button.

                    Got an invitation for a return match next year and will probably book two weeks down there and maybe have chance of having a go at some larger, nearby, fields belonging to a local farmer.

                    No gold and no treasure but it was great to get out in the sunshine and swing a coil but I didn't see any other detectorist about.

Glad you got out Smiley

I'm finding it hard to go to my usual farm, as I've become hooked on going to a local park where I've had 16 silvers this year (plus two silver rings) - and loads of old pennies and halfpennies, plus spendables - and even the odd older coin - like a copper duit of 1784 or a Chas II Irish halfpenny - mad - I just love having all the signals despite the amount of canslaw I find.
