Summer summary or February Finds from NEw Zealand

Heya Guys,

So what has been happening since i returned from Brisbane on 17 Feb ?
For a start i had several recovery requests that already been posted, but i missed this one  :

The ring was lost in a VERY VERY COLD water of mountain stream going of Piha waterfall.
I am Glad that i have found it withing 10 minutes of search, but it was VERY VERY COLD even in 7 mm wet-suit and hoodie.



19 February :

Trip to one of the Local beaches produced a very nice haul of finds from wet sand mark:


Rings are 3 junk, 2 silver and 1 9ct gold


This is my 2nd favorite silver ring this year : 


While evening outing on a dry sand gave couple more rings : 


Silver and Junk

24th of February 

This is a very interesting Day as we went to Local beach - Kohimarama
Nothing special apart from some steel coins and other junk. 2 hours into the Hunt a bloke came over and advised that in DECEMBER 2014 he lost a ring at a particular part of the beach (not commonly used for swimming) .I asked him to give me general location  (stairs/ rails/trees ) if he could remember any. Then advised to send me picture of the ring and description...
... Several hours later, after gridding the area and removing lots of Junk i have found it couple dozen meters away from the location he stated !




Reunited the next Day :
