Home&Away,Part 2 : The Bay Of dreams

Lets carry on the story,

As you might saw this preview allready : 

Yes and yes again, we did find our small bay of dreams ! every detectorist wishes to find one in his adventures. The bay that has never been detected, the one that holds all the treasures. For me- i've been lucky twice already. Thirst time it was Rarotonga, now its right here - my hometown - Auckland.

Tuesday 3d of February 

Bay welcomes me with all old coins and a huge load of stuff :

My loot got me 3  9ct gold, 4 silver rings and 2 junk , plus silver chain and bracelet 

Wednesday 4th of February 

Bay is showing me that it loves me with a locket and  18 ct Catholic ring , 9 ct old wedding band and Stainless ring. 4 silver rings as a bonus
