Just for fun...buried treasure

Have you ever seen people combing the beach with a metal detector? I suppose they're looking for buried treasure. In a slow rhythmic motion the swing the machine back and forth. Once in a while they'll stop and dig for an item, but I've never seen anybody jump for joy or throw a fist in the air and let out a victory whoop. Have you?

Once Tim lost the car keys on a beach in Florida, and a kind soul with a metal detector helped him find the keys. By the time they were found, I'm sure Tim cheered with relief.


We're planning a trip to Maine, and I was curious about buried treasure. We usually visit the Carolinas where there are stories of Blackbeard and other pirates, but I didn't know about up North.

It turns out there may be buried treasure in Maine. My research shows Captain Kidd may have buried at least 45 treasures in Maine around Wiscasset. Bucksport is another area known to have buried treasure from pirates as well as the mouth of the Penobscot River. These pictures are from the Bucksport area.




I don't think I'll plan a vacation around finding buried treasure though. When I go on vacation I like to relax and spend time with family and friends. Spending time with family is better than finding any buried treasure.
