Rick Browne (Ring Finder) Gave me a call to help locate a wedding band, that was tossed by accident from a finger while out body surfing. It was lost close to shore, and close to his home, but almost a week had gone by before Pam had contacted us to search for it. So off I went to meet up with Rick, we spent a couple hours in the rough surf, and pouring rain, to no avail. Pam had to leave shortly and I think she had almost gave up on it, but before she did, i really thought i had it a couple of times, and called her over only to see aluminum in my scoop, I was getting discouraged also. So we decided to go back again early next morning, again two more hours and no ring. We knew it was there, but where? it must have gotten buried fast in the very heavy surf. We let it sit for a few more days. We had made plans to go out detecting on our own, but Rick said hey Leighton, let’s give it one more shot for the band. I agreed, and off we went. This time a different machine in both of our hands, and much less waves, my detector made that small grunt we all love to hear, thirty minutes into the hunt, was a beautiful heavy Gold, 14K wedding band inscribed with both Pam and Keith’s wedding date. Third time was a charm. Persistence paid off and never give up. Its there. you just need the conditions and have to go over it.
