Hurricane Ian / Tropical Storm Ian pummels Florida and drops rain that is considered a “1000 year rain occurrence”. The Detecting Duo +1 headed down to the beach to see how New Smyrna Beach changed after the storm
and try to find older treasures on the beach.

In this treasure hunt we were able to find two silver rings, a nice chain bracelet and a variety of coins that have been on the beach for a while. An evening to night time treasure hunt on New Smyrna Beach as we find treasures in both the wet and dry sand areas. Always interesting things are found!
