I got a text from Aaron last week wanting to know if I could help him find his Palladium wedding ring that he had lost in the ocean at Silverstrand beach in Oxnard. Ocean recoveries are tough because the sand shifts with every tide and he said he had lost it over a week ago so I knew it was going to be tough but not impossible. I needed the tides in my favor so I checked the tables and last Saturday morning (August 21st) at 3:50am there was a -1.0 low tide so I got from him the general location he thought he had lost it and I told him I would be in touch.
Aaron wasn’t exactly sure where he was at or how far he was out in the water but I started to grid the area in the dark where I thought he might have been. I had been working north towards the jetty for an hour with no luck so I moved back where I started and headed south. On my third grid line pass I got a decent tone and after two scoops I had Aaron’s ring back. It was an awesome find given that it was pitch black out and the only light I had was moon through the fog. I had prayed that God would lead me to the ring and He did.
Aaron and met on Sunday so I could give him back his ring and thankfully it’s story will now continue even though it was buried in the sand for 10 days in the ocean. If you lose your ring let me know right away via text or call at 805-290-5009 so I can get to work on getting it back.
