We received a call from a groom who was in desperate need of our metal detecting services. As his story unfolded, he explained how he had only been married for 17 hours when his wedding band fell off into the warm Gulf waters at the Sundial Beach Resort on Sanibel Island.
We arrived at the location and as my wife and I were gathering our detecting gear together, he asked us what our success rate was. We explained it was about 95%.
He took us to the beach and we discussed the events that led to him discovering that his ring was missing. We began our search and several minutes went by with no success.
We met up with him again and went over the details a second time. This time we all agreed we needed to expand our search area. Within a few minutes later, my wife got a good signal in deeper water and within the first scoop there it was!
Needless to say, he was very happy to have his ring back and we were happy for him!
