Yesterday was gorgeous in the San Francisco Bay Area, the first real spring day we’ve had this year. Kelly and her friends enjoyed a picnic at a park, then picked up the pace a little with some hula hoops. Unfortunately, Kelly’s ring flew off her finger when she spun the hoop. She and her friends searched the deep grass, but could not find the ring.
We met Kelly at the park today. She showed us where they held the picnic and we planned a gridded search. Kelly put us in the right place, because it took less than five minutes to find the ring buried in the grass. Our metal detectors can find jewelry through grass and weeds, as long as we can swing the loop low over the ground.
One more reminder: if you lose your ring, stop and look around, finding landmarks for each place where you may have lost it. Kelly put us in the right place, so the search today was very quick. We wish they were all this easy!
