At 7:00am Monday morning, I met Tim at Ocean Beach where he had lost his ring the previous day. He and his friends had been throwing a football around when his cold wet hand let loose of his ring. Tim showed me the approximate area where he thought he had been and I proceded to mark off one of the corner boundaries by making an “L” in the sand with my foot. I turned on the E-trac and made just one sweep when I got the familiar gold ring sound about 7″ down. Sure enough, on the first scoop, I found his ring! He had that “no way” look on his face as I pulled his ring out of the sand. I wish all recoveries were this easy. He must have thought I was some sort of magician and that I had the ring all the time and was just fooling with him! Chalk up another smile and happy owner.
