    Found this gem on a Friday at a job site. Very few flaws; made my day.

    Nice find!  I have yet to discover a land site to search.  I have tried Venice, but without a target in mind I have spent a lot of time just looking for a promising spot without any luck.

    Thanks. 

    I'm pretty much going everyday after work on that search. Some places are good some places are just sand or shell.

    Good luck!
