Sunny at the beach today

Post by Bootneck45RM » Tue Dec 03, 2019 4:48 pm

Hi all,
Morning broke today, all wrong, 'it was bright and sunny' - couldn't make it out at first but then thought '2 hours on the beach - mmmmm!'
Better half gave permission so off I went.
It was so peaceful, not to busy in the morning and warm on the back.
Finds were plentiful but all decimal, with the m.m.k. begining to sound like a door bell: but at least it proved that a very well worked beach will still give something back.
It has at times looked like a detectorists convention down here on some days, but today was just me and my shadow! Dont you just love the sun in December.
Cheers
Len

Well done, Len
In the Winter we can do the beach at anytime of the day, unlike the Summer when it`s early morning due to Holidaymakers.
The sun looks glorious, better than a gale.
Cheers, ::g

I had a couple of hours in the sunshine too, getting to grips with the new kit.
Loads more agri-crud but found some hoofing worms :))

Yes, the weather this morning was exceptional given what we've experienced recently spent the full day in Scarborough but necessarily indoors. At least it made the drive more pleasant than is often the case.

Good job in terms of the number of 'good targets' retrieved Len and your pic of the beach confirms it will have been an very enjoyable session. Be Lucky ::g Regards ss47

PS. Re your last photo..............are you dark and handsome to complete the trio ? 8-|
A disservice is no service at all.

Cheers Eric, yes it was good today and glad it was the same cross-country, makes all things seem better! ๐ŸŒž. Also hope the new AT pro is working well in Keefs hands apart from the worms eh! ๐Ÿ›

ps: re your last comment, dont know who that is, but he's been following me for more years than I care to remember - quite scary now I look at it ๐Ÿ˜‚

I'm trying out the extra buttons ! All seems straightforward enough & I much prefer the Pro tones to the Ace bings & bongs. I'm running it on Pro Zero as recommended & at full gas on my field & it's hoovering up the agri-junk & the pinpoint is bang on middle of the coil which wasn't always the case with the Ace 250 with a Nel Hunter attached :))
I've four months off now so once I'm happy I've sussed it, it's off to my permissions.
Z-Link is great stuff ::g

Sounds like you've found a good-un. Always liked Garret and want to upgrade my daughters machine soon, she likes a machine that dosnt need updating with new software, new v1, v2, etc etc, and the AT Pro seems like a solid buy.
With watch with interest how you get on with it.

Product loyalty played a part as nothing fell off or failed with the Ace, same reason I only have Fords ::g :))
Having a techy trade, I do tire of endless layered menus & firmware/software updates.
