Ring at Mission Beach Found

  • from La Jolla (California, United States)

      I was just about to sit down to dinner when I got a call from Taylor who said that her husband had lost his gold band wedding ring in the dry sand at Mission Beach. He had removed his ring to apply lotion to his child (where have I heard this before?) and had put the ring in his pocket. After some physical activities, including cartwheels, he discovered his ring was no longer in his pocket. They hadn’t left the area so it should have been an easy search….and it was. I started a grid and made 3 passes when I got the typical strong 12-13 on my E-trac which is what I expect to see on your typical gold band. It was almost underneath the baby carriage!

        It was a pleasure to meet you both and thank you for the reward. I was happy to find it before someone else did on this busy beach and before the sand grooming machine ate it. Here’s the ring and the happy faces at the sunset of another day in paradise.
