I needed to return to hunt

After a long time without hunting for work … Today I went two hours to remove the addiction.
In the coming months I will have more time to hunt,

My Metal Detecting Finds (18/02/2014)

playa rodiles

Today I wanted to be useful the morning … I wanted to go first to the parking and at the end of the morning to the beach (because the condition of the sea was perfect).

I returned to Rodiles’s beach, and at 9 a.m. I already was searching. As I said to you before, began first for the parking. The parking is not the one that is nearer to the beach (that one parking already I have gone in many occasions) … it is a parking that is more remote. More or less I found approximately 4 Euros and several pesetas (less than I was thinking). IMG_0134

Later I went to the west of the beach because another part of the beach already was looked by another hunter.

And it was a success because it was not stopping finding coins of Euros and overcoat Pesetas.

Approximately 75 coins:

Total euros= 12 euros (to pay petrol, coffee and menú :))

500 pesetas, 100pesetas(x2), 25 pesetas with hole (x10), 5 small pesetas (x12), 25 big pesetas, Germany coin, 5 big pesetas(x6), 10 small pesetas, 1 peseta(x2)….

Not only I found coins, also instruments of fishing and little rubbish. In the photos you can see my FINDS.

In total, today  has been a very good day. 😀IMG_0135

Tomorrow I will return to the beach and I expect to have the same luck of today

Happy Hunting Everyone

My Metal Detecting Finds (17/02/2014)

playa rodiles

Today in the morning I took the car and drove up to Rodiles’s beach. The day was perfect, sunny and with good temperature.

One of the most beautiful beaches in Asturias. There are all types of services and facilities from showers to a team of lifeguards so that the beach is safe. Both sides of the beach are surrounded by woods and cliffs that provide lovely views. Without doubt the surfers paradise of Asturias. During the best part of the year you can see dozens of surfers doing all kinds of manoeuvres on the waves. Behind the beach there are sand dunes. The sand is fine and of excellent quality

When I came to the beach, another hunter was searching…So I looked for another place to hunt… merendero rodiles

Next to the beach  exists a lunchroom, I was searching during an hour but the problem was that there was too much rubbish 😦 , anyhow I found some currency of euro and pesetas.

I tried to discriminate and to calibrate the detector but the best option was to look for another place to search.

parking rodiles

 

 

Rodiles’s beach is one of the most famous in Asturias (north of Spain), and has several parkings.

 

I went to one of these parkings and in the photo you will be able to observe my finds.

It is not great, but to pay the petrol and the food … more that sufficient:D

Tomorrow I will return to the parking because there is a zone in which I never searched and I believe that it will be a very good zone

My Metal Detecting Finds (14/02/2014)

Playa_san pedro

On Friday morning I returned to the same site, I wanted to finish a zone of the parking that had never touched, and it has not gone badly… Approximately 25 coins, most of them were “pesetas”

The peseta was introduced in 1869 after Spain joined the Latin Monetary Union in 1868. The Spanish Law of June 26, 1864 decreed that in preparation for joining the Latin Monetary Union (set up in 1865), the peseta became a subdivision of the peso with 1 peso duro = 5 pesetas. The peseta replaced the escudo at a rate of 5 pesetas = 1 peso duro = 2 escudos.

The peseta was equal to 4.5 grams of silver, or 0.290322 grams of gold, the standard used by all the currencies of the Latin Monetary Union. From 1873, only the gold standard applied.

The political turbulence of the early twentieth century (especially during the years after the World War I) caused the monetary union to break up, although it was not until 1927 that it officially ended.

In 1959, Spain became part of the Bretton Woods System, pegging the peseta at a value of 60 pesetas = 1 U.S. dollar. In 1967, the peseta followed the devaluation of the British pound, maintaining the exchange rate of 168 pesetas = 1 pound and establishing a new rate of 70 pesetas = 1 U.S. dollar.

The peseta was replaced by the euro in 2002, following the establishment of the euro in 1999. The exchange rate was 1 euro = 166.386 pesetas.

That the coins were most of them pesetas it is normal … the parking before was used as camping and was a very famous beach in the 80s.

Nowadays it is a beach to which nearby neighbors come and also the users of San’s Pedro camping (I attach photo)camping san pedro

It is a camping with enough visitors, but only in summer since nowadays it is closed

 

 

In the photography you can see my FINDS … it is not sufficient to buy  a house next to the beach but it is sufficient to have a good morning with my detector 😉IMG_0128

Tomorrow morning I will go a zone very frequented nowadays … the most normal  is that I will find more Euros and a lot of rubbish 🙂
