Hi from Maui.
Well we finally took some time off and headed to warmer weather.
The Kaanapali beach where we are staying has a very nice beach, and it is heavily used. Between family activities I have been sneaking out to work the sand.
I started with the XLT and was very happy with the Beach program. I have also been using the Surfmaster PI. Both machines have done well.
The first time out, was in the evening, and I picked up a watch and two silver rings. They all look pretty cheep, but I was happy to find them. The beaches are very clean, and it is probably due to at least 5 other guys working them every day. I have met several of them, and all have been nice. I met a local who I have seen twice so far. He works the low tide in the early morning. So far just a few rings and a moderate amount of change.
I took one afternoon and tried the surfmaster while snorkeling. I was able to get many signals, but the wave action has been very strong and I was unable to get down to work through the rock and sand to see what was there. Eventually I got tossed by a big wave, which blew my headset off and rolled me in the sand on the bottom. I decided working the beach looked better.
I found one ring while out snorkeling. It is the one with the turtles on it. Sells for $18 in the store.
I spent about three hours woking the Grand Wailea resort. Great beach, but only a single Canadian coin and a couple dimes ect. That evening was the best sunset ever.
Well thanks for looking at the blog and I have a couple days left and will try the beach again.
