out and about "oot and aboot" taking a walk, my eyes are always scanning the ground, looking for a good 'ground score'. That can be anything from a cool rock to something that someone's lost (of course if it's something valuable I will try to find the owner). I'm especially looking for arrowheads but I have not been successful in finding them, except for 2 I found on my parents' property in the 1970's. Never really found anything good at Dead shows either, surprisingly.
Since moving back here, however, I have had really decent luck with the ground score (beach comb treasures not included)! This is what I've found so far this summer: A license plate, toy truck, silver ankle bracelet, a blue glass thing and a golf ball. I have been waffling on weather I should turn the plate over to the DMV, because it's going to be a major hassle (and expense) for the owner to get it replaced....but my desire to add to my license plate collection has kept me from doing the honorable thing, b/c I don't have any trailer plates....
I have zero idea what this glass thing is. It's not a bead because it's not drilled. It's shaped like a guitar pick and about the same size, but it's thicker. It's opaque on this side.
And the other side of it is chipped to reveal clear glass under the opaque blue.
I found this cute little Ford truck on the beach at Buttermilk Bay. I love the celestial fleur de lys design on the hood.
I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for more treasure!!
