Coin Beach

Ever since I started this great hobby of metal detecting, I have read stories about Coin Beach. This famous stretch of beach has been on my To-do list for quite some time now and this past trip to the shore it became a reality.

We like to Rehoboth Beach once a year, usually after the Labor Day holiday. The weather is a little cooler, the crowds have died down and the accommodations are a little cheaper. Yet this summer we decided to visit one day, two nights, for my birthday. So during my birthday week we hit Rehoboth Beach, unfortunately so did the bad weather, it was so unseasonably cold and rainy, that we couldn’t even hit the beach. Luckily the Berb came prepared for an event like this, because hey, you can’t spend all day at Fun Land right?

My Bad-weather list was compromised of three places to visit. The first was the Zwaanendale Museum, which focused on the DeBraak shipwreck located in Lewes.  The second was sunken treasure display in Georgetown. And finally the DiscoverSea Shipwreck Museum in Fenwick, which is what we chose to visit, in part because the trip from Rehoboth to Fenwick took us right by Coin Beach – the location of where the Faithful Steward had sunk.

The DiscoverSea Shipwreck Museum was awesome! I spent a good hour inside and will visit again soon. This visit also made me hunger for shipwreck booty, mainly an old coin!
