Treasure Hunting on the Beach

Treasure Hunting on the Beach

Posted: Updated:

We all have our hobbies. For Gulf Breeze's Peggy McGonegle, it's treasure hunting on the beach.

It's hard to miss them at the beach, people searching with their metal detectors for treasures, lost in the sand.

But, what kinds of treasures do they really find?

"Mainly jewelry and coins. Mainly coins like pennies, but sometimes you find jewelry, I found two rings last month. Some people find a lot of gold. I'm not that lucky yet," says Peggy.

Although her two big finds are two pretty rings, she also once found something a little odd.

"A bag of weed. It was laying in the sand, and after a little while the owner came up and asked if I found it and would I give it back to him, which I did,"says Peggy.

Peggy may have gotten rid of that, but  she did hang on to her new rings and hopes to find more treasures in her future.

She says if she ever finds anything that can be identified, she turns it in to authorities.
