I received a call from a gentleman this afternoon. He said that he had lost his gold wedding band on the beach at Corolla. He was concerned that the tide was coming in. I got some basic information and headed that way. When I arrived I asked him if he thought it was in the water. He replied yes. So I got my waterproof headphones and we headed down to the beach with my Equinox 800.
As I passed the back deck several people started cheering. I replied, “not yet!” He got me lined up on where he thought he lost it and I ask him how far he thought the tide had come in. He said he though it would be 15 to 15 yards in the water. I started the search.
I hadn’t gone far…maybe a few feet…the sand was barely wet and I got a hit. It was a strong signal but by his description of where he thought it was, this couldn’t be it. I dug it anyway and took it up to the dry sand. Low and behold a gold ring appeared. We made sure it was the right ring and when I was going passed the deck the people began to cheer again…
I took a bow. 🙂
