Today was the first sunny day we've had since the water went back down. It's supposed to cool down after today, so I took the afternoon off to see how things looked. The bank runs 6 to 8 feet above the water during normal conditions, and the amber Hannis was laying in the sand that was left in the woods when the creek was out of its banks. It was cool to find something before I even made it to the water, but sometimes finding something that quick has jinxed me in the past. I got in and started downstream and found the Chero-Cola, left it sitting on a bar and headed on until a big tree had me blocked big time. Figured I'd come up from another put-in another day and turned around for the trip back upstream, doing the close looking with my bucket now. I got to a spot that has produced in the past, sorta like rapids compared to an otherwise lazy creek, and spotted the pottery bottle laying in full view on the bottom with the bricks and junk. I pulled it out, and was like wow, my first ginger beer, and not even a flake, just perfect. I know they aren't worth much, if anything, but it's golden to me. Thanks for looking!
