I received a call from Angel saying her brother-in-law, Lee, had lost his wedding band in the sand. She said that he knew exactly where it was and it was above the high tide mark. Perfect! She also stated they had looked for quite a while with no luck. I got the location from her and told her I’d be there in about 30 minutes, I was just sitting down to dinner.
I finished dinner, grabbed my detector, and text Angel I was on my way. We had been having heavy storms all day, and it was still raining when I pulled into the parking lot. Angel, her husband, Kiel and Lee were standing in a parking garage out of the rain when Angel hollowed “Jim.” The rain was getting harder as we walked out on the beach. Lee walked ahead of us, and made his way across the top of the beach and starting pacing off steps seaward to where he lost his ring. He stopped and said, “Right here is where I was using my hands to dig a hole with my son. I was throwing the sand out in this direction.” I turned my Equinox on, took a couple of steps and hit a target. Its VDI wasn’t what I was looking for so I passed over it. I took two steps and turned around and went back to the target. I’ve put a bigger coil on this machine and have found my VDI numbers are a little higher than they are with the standard coil. It took about 3 or 4 scoops of sand to get the target out. Evidently, when Lee was filling the hole back up, he buried his ring. I spread the scooped sand out and didn’t see anything. I ran the sand through my fingers and spotted his sand filled ring on the ground. I picked it and gently tossed it his way. His shock was apparent. Huge smiles from everyone. Lee told me that yesterday was he and his bride’s 1 year anniversary.
Angel – Thank you for contacting me!
Lee – Thank you for trusting me to help find your lost treasure. A belated Happy Anniversary to you and your wife.
