This is one of the tools of the trade in my new hobby, metal detecting . . .

I love urban archeology and finding things. Especially things that people have discarded or lost. The idea that something has been buried under a 3 inch layer of sand and might have been there for a very long time and never noticed is a rush for me and the idea that there are thousands of things like this on beaches and in parks and areas where people gather and drop shit amazes me.

So this is a wet sand beach scoop, and I'll post pictures of whatever I find on here when I get a chance to take it to the beach some weekend coming up.

I'm sure everyone will be waiting with baited breath!

I had a pretty busy weekend this week .

As some of you may know , metal detecting is my new exciting hobby and we went to the beach this weekend to let Amy frolic in the sun and me and Vaughn could go searching for treasure . . . well I found a penny and 2 bottle caps . No big deal though as it was fun to wander around on the beach and enjoy my town .

After we all got home I decided to tear into a project I've been putting off for a while now . New floor in the motorhome .

It had been redone a long time ago in some nasty carpet and some broken tiles in the " kitchen " by a former owner . I ripped it all out and got started , here's how it turned out . Not too bad for my first time doing a floor all by myself .

Now the old girl is ready for the summer and we're ready for a little camping !
