As I was finishing up the story of my last ring recovery, I received a call from Scott who was attending a wedding at the Hotel Del Coronado. You my remember this hotel if you’ve seen the movie, Some Like it Hot, with Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon, and Tony Curtis. Anyway, he was seated with his family at some tables outside on the sand when he decided to let his young daughter handle his wedding ring. Even though he impressed upon her the importance of a wedding ring, she had no problem burying it in the sand! After an attempt to sift through the sand with fingers without success, he searched online for help and contacted me through the Ring Finders site. As luck would have it, I was able to come right over and do a search before dinner figuring it should be a fairly easy recovery since they hadn’t left the search area and it was a very small area to search. If course, I’ve thought that in the past at times, and had long, difficult ones instead.
This time we were in luck and it took maybe two swings of the loop before I had a nice gold sound in my sites. About 3 inches under the sand I pulled out Scott’s nice wedding band. It had taken me 100 time longer to find a parking spot at the beach that day than the ring! All turned out well and no major delays in the after-wedding festivities. As Scott found out, save your money buying or renting a metal detector to use yourself, and get not only a detector, but, someone who has some experience using one too. It can save a lot of time and frustration. It was a pleasure to meet you Scott, and thanks for the reward to help keep this service going.
