I got a call at 6:30 PM from Nikhil on Lanikai Beach saying that when he picked up his back pack he didn’t realize his wife Sonali had put his Wedding Band in one of the pockets so as not to lose it at the beach. When he got back to their car he asked Sonali for his ring and it dawned on them that somewhere in the sand it had fallen out of the pack. I told Nikhil that I could be there in 30 minutes and it was getting dark quickly. When I arrived at Lanikai Beach it was pitch black. Thankfully I brought my Maglite. Nikhil took me to the 10 by 5 meter area they were at on the beach thinking the ring must have fallen out there. The area was neatly covered with horizontal finger rake marks where they had been searching for about an hour with no luck. Nikhil explained that they were from India and this ring had great family sentimental value. I went to work on the high side of the beach and on my third leg I got a screaming target. One scoop down and there was Nikhil’s beautiful ring. They both were overcome with joy and so grateful. Elapsed time 3 minutes and a Vacation event they will never forget. Aloha to Nikhil & Sonali!
