The Drifting Seed Newsletter

Received the current issue of The Drifting Seed, the sea-bean newsletter published by Mr. Sea-Bean, Ed Perry, packed with interesting articles. You can read it on-line at We're only three and a half months away from the 13th annual Sea-Bean Symposium, so start making your plans. If you're coming from out of town, best make your room reservations early, as there is an Elvis festival in Cocoa Beach that same weekend. (Ed provided this picture of some Drifting Seed newsletters, with one of Curtis Ebbesmeyer's Beachcombers' Alert newsletters in the background.)

Ed is a Parks Services Specialist at the McLarty Treasure Museum, part of Sebastian Inlet State Park. Sebastian Inlet State Park is on both sides of the border of two counties - Brevard and Indian River. Brevard is known as the Space Coast. If you go to the McLarty Treasure Museum, you'll find out why Indian River County is known as the Treasure Coast. If you love history and gold coins and salvage, this is the place for you. Read about Ed's first 1715 Fleet Treasure Coin at - great story.
