Early this morning after camping at Lake Murray, Susan broke out the metal detector and the four of us headed down to a spot near the lake known as Buzzards Roost. We didn’t know why it was called that until, well, we saw the buzzards.
Susan and the kids wasted no time in scavenging the area. Susan works the metal detector and whenever she gets a hit on some metal, the kids take turns digging up the dirt and sifting through the piles to find their treasure.
The “best” find of the day were these old, broken eye glasses.
The worst was this underwear strap.
The fact that this was an old, used strap of elastic that was at some point in time attached to someone else’s underwear did not prevent Morgan from picking it up and swinging it around.
Other bits of treasure included this old beer can.
Somebody somewhere thinks this is fun.
The final tally, according to Morgan, was “28 nails, 2 cans, 5 pop tops, and 2 unidentifiable pieces of metal.”
The best find of the day were these brand new sunglasses, which we did not need a metal detector to find. Someone had left them sitting on a rock next to the boat dock.
I think we can clearly see who the winner of this adventure was.
