Lost Gold wedding Band in Whonnock Lake, Maple Ridge

by

I got a call from young man that told me that he lost his wedding ring at Whonnock Lake in Maple Ridge and that he and his wife and friends searched for over an hour but had no luck finding it.I know this lake well as I have found a couple of lost rings for the owners in the past and from the description of the area he described it sounded like an easy search. We made arrangements to meet early the next morning and I drove them to the search site.When the young man showed me the area it was a fare way out in the cool morning water to where he lost his 2 month old gold wedding band. We started the search and it wasn’t exactly the perfect conditions I was hoping for due to large odd shaped rocks that made it extremely hard to search with my sand scoop. After a few dives down to check and if I could spot my signal, I had to stop due to the fact it was nearly impossible to see anything in the water.I continued to go after a good strong signal, I was sure it was his ring but had a tough time scooping it up with all the big rocks around. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Then after 20 minutes I looked into my scoop and saw the sweet site of gold! I love that feeling because I know good that young man and his wife would feel…These were two very nice people who were in love and I know how much they wanted their ring back where it belonged. These rings travel 12,000 km from Iran to Vancouver for that wedding day, only two months ago OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I truly have the greatest job in the world…I get to find peoples lost smiles… thank you so much for reading my post… until the next one!Lost your ring…Call me ASAPBest, Chris TurnerYou can watch the video of the search below…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8mY2fdKIbuk
