I got a call from Alex last night on the way to church. He and his family we’re enjoying the late afternoon sun at Hendry’s beach in Santa Barbara when he decided to cool off with a quick dip into the pacific. He has applied sunscreen only minutes before and when he got knee deep in the water he reached down into the water and when he brought his hands up his ring flew off. There was no finding it at that depth of water without a metal detector so I checked the tides and I felt that the low tide at 5:30am was our only shot at getting it back.
I got up at 4:30am hit the road and was at Hendry’s by 5:30am and I began to grid east-west to see if I could intercept the location it went into the water. After about 10 minutes I got a screaming hit on my XP Deus II and two scoops later I had the ring. Alex shared with me that the ring was a copy of his father’s wedding ring so the find was that much more meaningful. Alex did the right thing and called me at 805-290-5009 almost immediately after losing it which gave us the best chance to get it back. Don’t you hesitate to call if you have lost any jewelry of value because time works against us so call or text at 805-290-5009 and I’ll figure out a plan to get your ring back.
