    Hawaiian beaches have plenty of metal detectors.

    and they stay busy walking up & down the beach or in the water.

    it's a profitable walk

    I know what you mean about not having the time! We picked it back up after a few years of not having the opportunity and I had forgotten how much fun it is!

    What a great setting for making some extra money! And the sand would be much easier to dig than soil.

    That's what I thought when I first watched - as years pasted with many visits to Hawaii the detector hobby has increased.
    Last year there were two sisters each with their own detector we chatted for awhile.
    They love the hobby & both had collected beautiful jewelry.

    Beaches are the perfect place to hunt

    have fun

    There are some remote beaches along the Pacific coast in the northwest. You have to hike to get to them. Some are famous because old bits of glass from shipwrecks wash ashore there. Some of the glass is from the 1800s or before. There are custom jewelry stores that buy this sea glass from those who hike down to the coves and beaches and search for it. Some of it (and the resultant jewelry) is quite beautiful.

    I bet it is! We have some sea glass on the east coast beaches but not a lot. I came across an article not too long ago about the sea glass on the Pacific coast but I can't remember where! It will come to me if I quit thinking about it!

    Many detector's sell to jewelry store and independent artist

    I love the " one of a kind " jewelry pieces.

    If you come to Kansas I can assure you of finding a buffalo chip or two.
