My Metal Detecting Finds (17/03/2014)

Today I have gone to a new beach, a beach where I have never been going to hunt, Arenal del Morís Beach

An extended, sandy beach like all the beaches in Caravia, Arenal de Morís is also a beach where surf championships are held every year.  Its shape is a little peculiar, almost as if it’s actually 2 beaches divided by a small peninsula surrounded by rocks. Stairs and an accessible entry point were built on its Western side only but you can reach the Eastern side easily from there. You can reach Arenal de Morís by car (there’s an European highway and the National N-632 road passing nearby) but the most interesting way (my suggestion) is to follow the coastal path GR-204. arenal del moris

Really long beach (770 meters wide) of sand and very few rocks with all the amenities you need: showers, toilets, lifeguard, 2 parkings (a big one a bit further away and a small one close to the beach), a beach bar, a picnic area and a children playground. It’s accessible and a good fishing and surfing spot. It also has a camping nearby

 

 

 

And it has not been a good day, I don´t believe that it is because the beach is not good…. I believe the chosen moment is not the good one. In almost all the beaches of Asturias there have been storms but in the last ten days it has had good weather and sand has been accumulated in the beaches.

Of all forms the day was very good and the experience has been positive, good climate and a perfect environment to hunt. I have found a big screw, an object without identifying, a ring of silver and ten coins. You can see my finds in the next photo¡¡

Happy hunting¡¡¡¡¡ The next time I hope that it is a bit better 😉

My Metal Detecting Finds (14/03/2014)

Today I wanted to try in a new beach because the condition of the beaches is not too ideal to search… Or they are full of stones or it has returned to accumulate sand.

And after analyzing several beaches, I took my detector and went to Verdicio’s beach

The sea forms steep rocky cliffs on the central coast of this Principado of Asturias. In this area of low littoral, the rocks work as perpendicular limits to the sea and not as a firm barrier to the waves. These are beaches open to the Cantabrian Sea that are dangerous for swimming in many occasions. This fact is probably its major merit: the natural landscape it offers to us, to enjoy the sea on its wildest condition. This one covers 330 meters, but the whole area verdiciocovers 90,000 square meters on low tide counting with daily vigilance during the summer and restaurants in its surroundings. This one also forms dunes as in La Carniciega. The quality of its water is excellent although swimming is still dangerous. On high tide waves break on the same shore. In good weather conditions sea forms left waves which are suitable for experienced surfers. For all this, this beach is probably one of the most known in this region.

And it has not been OK but at least it was better than yesterday, the day was sunny and I enjoyed much the landscape and the beach.

I attach photo of my searches. A greeting to all and good weekend. HAPPY HUNTING¡¡¡

No sounds… Too sand

My Metal Detecting Finds (07/03/2014)

Today on Friday, I wanted to finish the week in a new beach … a beach that I had gone approximately 3 months ago, Carranques beach.

carranques beach

Carranque beach, the most important holidays Perlora City, maintaining the same high level of affluence of the area. At high tide is divided into two shell-shaped beaches that enjoy independent access (ramps / stairs). This promontory is a “temple geological ‘retained abundant fossils in the cliff. This beach is surrounded by large meadows and a recreational area. Following the promenade is located in the Priests Cove and then Entrellusa Island, whaling port until the seventeenth century.

Many years ago it was a very active beach, with many visitors. But nowadays The city of Perlora’s Vacations is totally left.

In the 50s, it was a residential city where thousands of persons were coming in summer.

Ciudad de Vacaciones de Perlora

Inicialmente concebida como una ciudad sindical para el retiro vacacional de trabajadores, La Ciudad Residencial conoció un gran auge entre los años 70 y 80, en los que llegó a adquirir renombre a nivel nacional. La llegada de los 90 supuso una merma en la afluencia de público y un progresivo abandono de las instalaciones que culminó con la decisión del gobierno del Principado de Asturias (su último titular público) de privatizar la gestión,[1] proceso actualmente eperloro años 50n curso. Los trabajadores de las instalaciones se opusieron desde un primer momento al cambio de titularidad y en 2006 comenzaron una serie de movilizaciones para detener el proceso. El 23 de octubre de 2007, el Gobierno del Principado hizo público el informe preliminar de adjudicación de la gestión de la Ciudad Residencial Perlora a un consorcio de empresas asturianas por un periodo de 50 años y con una inversión prevista de casi 83 millones de euros, afirmando que se convertirá en un complejo turístico de referencia. Diferencias entre la administración pública y el consorcio adjudicatario mantuvieron bloqueado el proyecto hasta Agosto de 2010, fecha en la que la admiinstración revocó la licencia de explotación alegando el incumplimiento de los plazos previstos. El complejo actualmente se halla en un estado de semi-abandono. No obstante, sigue congregando a multitud de visitantes todos los veranos que se acercan a disfrutar de sus playas y sus áreas de recreo. Deportistas y vecinos de Candás, que se acercan a pasear, son también usuarios habituales de las instalaciones, en las que pese a la situación actual, aún resisten algunos negocios de hostelería en època estival.

Now to concentrate on the photo on what condition one finds nowadays. A disaster

perlora today2It is a shame but the crisis concerns everything.

All that does that the beach to which I went to searching only has found PESETAS. Nowadays only  come to the beach, runners or people walking the dog 😀

In the following photo you can see all my searches, everything  coins of peseta, in total more or less 40. There is interesting someone but I have to clean them a bit.

This weekend I work, so I wish all you a good weekend and HAPPY HUNTING¡¡¡

My Metal Detecting Finds (04/03/2014)

Rodiles oeste

After the storm … I had thought to return to Rodiles’s beach. And I was not wrong because the storm damaged to the beach and did a slope in the zone west of the beach. IMG_0157

After coming … in the first hole that I did … it had passed not even 5 minutes of search. And the miracle took place … the first hole and golden ring. It was something incredible.

You can see the gold ring in the next photo. Next to the ring there is another jewel but I believe that it is a scrap.

In the beach also I found more or less 50 coins. Euros (3 Euros in total) and Pesetas (500 pesetas, 100 pesetas, 50 pesetas, 25 pesetas, 5 pesetas … great variety of pesetas).

 

You can see all my searches in the following photo. It has been one very good day after the storm

…and yesterday afternoon the storm came strong :O

PLAYA LA ISLA

Before the arrival of the storm I wanted to return to the beach The Isla. Today a strong storm comes to the north of Spain with waves of 10 meters and strong squalls of wind.

Today I came to the beach at 9 a.m. and was detecting up to 12 of the morning, approximately three hours. And it was a very well taken advantage of search because I found more than 50 coins in 3 hours.

Approximately 4 Euros and the rest of coins of peseta (500 pesetas, 100 pesetas, 50 pesetas, 25 pesetas … many pesetas). Also I found a ring silver, it is old enough.

You can see in the photo everything that I found. Tomorrow if the weather allows it to me I will return to hunt, but still I do not have decided where.

Happy Hunting Everyone

My Metal Detecting Finds (19/02/2014)

playa rodiles

Yes … today¡¡ On February 19 I have found my second ring of gold 😀     18 kilates (better than the previous one).

Today I returned to Rodiles’s beach to continue looking in the west of the beach, the same zone that yesterday had found many coins…

IMG_0137I have found approximately 30 coins, few coins of Euro (they they all add 1 Euro) and enough coins of Peseta. In the photo you can see all of them.

Tomorrow I will try to prove the electrolysis to clean the coins and to clean several rings of silver. I believe that the electrolysis is one of the best options to clean objects … tomorrow or the day after tomorrow I tell you how I have done it.

In this one link you can see all the methods that I have put in in blog https://topocastor.wordpress.com/tag/limpieza/

IMG_0138

Also you all can see the fisherman’s tools that I have found. The sound is very good, sounds to coin 😀

But the best of the day was to have found 3 rings, one of gold and two of silver. Also I found a part of an earring or hanger but it seems to be false.

I say goodbye of you with the photo of the rings. It has been a perfect day. HAPPY HUNTING EVERYONE¡¡¡
