The beachcomber

Often early on saturday and sunday mornings in summer I see a couple of beachcombers combing the beach with their metal detectors and sieve/buckets and trowels.When I stop and watch them they only seem to ever find small pieces of metallic foil-cigarette packet remnants  or sweet wrappers.Even if they do find some small change surely it cannot be worth the effort?
Perhaps they are hoping to find some lost jewellery or maybe a Rolex.Seems an odd pursuit to me for what must be very slim pickings.Each to his own I guess.This very serious beachcomber was on the beach at Terrigal,NSW, Central Coast this morning.
