Greetings from the Cooper River! We've just completed day 3 of diving with one more day left to extract more secrets and treasures from this unusual dive destination.
Bruce aka ScubaShafer along with Rick aka H20 found several amazing artifacts pictured above. From left to right we have a small early 1900's bowl fragment (light colored). Next to it is a 1750 to 1770's Dutch Ginger Beer bottle (light colored with the handle). Above in the middle is a late 1700's feather edged pattern plate fragment. Below that is a 600 to a 1000 year old ancient Indian utilitarian bowl half (dark black). Next to that is free hand blown dark colored rum bottle with an applied neck. Next to that is an early 1900's clear medicine bottle.
All of these were given up by the Cooper River Gods on our first day of diving!
Day 2 and 3 were also bountiful both in artifacts and TEETH!!! All KINDS of teeth and bone and yes the granddaddy of them all...several MEGALODON TROPHY teeth!
As they say...if you missed it...you REALLY MISSED IT!!! But hopefully SingleDivers.com will do another trip to the Cooper to give you another chance.
Oh yes, did I mention several of the River's veterans came out to join us and clearly enjoyed themselves saying this was one of the best Cooper River trips that they had ever been on. Oh yes...and the food was awesome. SingleDivers.com SURE knows how to prepare a lunch spread and cook a mean bbq of fresh fish, chicken, venison, pork, veggies and more.
And in true NEW SingleDivers.com tradition....ask us about the ancient Indian Love Beads that our divers found, rubbed, and enjoyed the vitures of great luck and love....
