Peggy and Norton were enjoying their annual vacation at Stinson Beach in Marin County. They were spending a beautiful day on the beach when Peggy put her wedding and engagement rings in her hat while she applied suntan lotion. A bit later, when she put the hat back on, the rings were flung into the deep, dry sand where they instantly disappeared.
We made it up a couple of days later. Peggy had carefully noted where she had been sitting when she lost the rings, so we had a good starting point. Eryn started searching and heard no tones at all, meaning the beach was very clean. After about two minutes, she heard her first tone, stuck her hand deep in the sand, and pulled up one ring. A foot away, another tone, and she found the other ring.
This was an easy search because Peggy knew exactly where she was sitting when she lost the rings. If you lose your rings, please look around and mark your location by landmarks like trees, light poles, rocks, or fences. If you can give us a reasonable area to search, you increase your chances of recovery significantly.
