of the Rings
By Leigh Webber
was a very busy summer season of treasure hunting at Sydney’s Bondi Beach, so
much so that I decided to christen it ‘The Summer of the Rings’ as I found more
than 30, along with a heap of other stuff, some of it valuable and some not.
actually had my weirdest find this past summer when I got a deep signal on Bondi
Beach and after digging down about two feet, caught sight of the lid of a
biscuit tin. Better still, the lid was still closed on the tin itself and I
immediately imagined I’d stumbled upon a cache of valuables. I just figured if someone went to the trouble
of burying something this deep there had to be something valuable inside.
more digging I brought the biscuit tin to the surface before opening it up. My
initial elation quickly turned to deflation as I realised I was the target of a
prank. Inside the tin was a rubber snake sitting on some fake money!
It would have to be the
biggest anti-climax I’ve experienced in my time detecting but at the same time,
it was one of my funniest finds ever, and I still don't know who the prankster
