From time to time, especially after a hot weekend when people crowd the beach, it’s not uncommon to see someone sweeping the sands for lost treasure. For some unknown reason these treasure hunters appear to fall into a certain age group, perhaps because they now have the time for this modern form of beach combing. Equipped with their “mine detectors”, they wander methodically up and down listening for that fateful “ping”. Out comes the spade for a little foraging, inspection, discard or storage in the pouch on the belt. Then it is on with waving the magic wand and the next telltale signal.
Today was such a day.
