Dear White's,

One afternoon about a week ago, I decided to go down to what I now call "Treasure Beach". I live in Southern California and love going down to this beach with my White’s Surf PI. When I have an hour or two to spare, it is a great way for me to relax, listen to the slight hum from the PI, always anticipating a beep, enjoying the fresh air and admiring all the beautiful scenery. Feeling the ocean rush around my feet while I detect... You can’t beat that. It is also really fun for me when kids are around to see their eyes light up when I dig up a penny, dime, nickel or quarter. I always give it to them for their first treasure.

I noticed treasure hunting on the wet sand is just like fishing, sometimes a few bites, sometimes nothing, and sometimes it is great. You just have to go the challenge is sometimes to find where the bite is. Over the past few times a small area was starting to produce a few pieces of light junk jewelry, and some light change, and a few quarters.

I thought the bite was picking up time to go back, so here I am on the beach turn on the PI, listen to the hum take a few steps BEEP, dig silver ring, a few more steps BEEP, Dig a diamond ring, ended up with seven rings, & 14 quarters to boot!+ the Misc. Thank You lord for life and Thank You White’s for a great machine. I cannot tell you how much enjoyment I have had with my White's Surf PI!

Richard
