Fall is upon us now. The leaves on the trees are just beginning to turn and the nights are getting very cool. Wonderful for sleeping! Last night we probably could have put the furnace on but we always put that off for as long as possible. However, makes for some chilly dressing in the morning!
We still continue to go out with our metal detector on weekends. Two weekend ago we went to Highland Lake Recreation Area and Pontiac Lake Recreation Area. Highland Lake Recreation area seems to be mostly for people to bring their dogs to train and to hunt. This guy was sitting in the back of one of the trucks parked in the lot.
He kept looking at us and whining...I wanted to let him out!
There was one section of the recreation area that had a nice picnic area and shelter. It also had the old rangers house, long abandoned. It was pretty creepy right there in the woods!
Pontiac Lake Recreation Area was huge! We only covered a small part of it but did pretty good. We plan on going back there soon.
Last weekend we just decided to hit a few local parks. On Saturday, at a little park right by the lake I found this:
I was so excited to find my first ring! I don't think the diamond is real, but I will take it to a jeweler to be sure.
The next day we went to another park which is fairly close to our house. This one has a amphitheatre and they have a big carnival every year. Anyway, around the amphitheatre we found 11 quarters! We only hit a small fraction of the park so we will definitely be going back!
Tonight I am having dinner with a few old friends! Should be fun!
