Greg called me Sunday about an hour after realizing his ring was lost in the sand at Black’s Beach. We met at the glider port on top of the cliff overlooking the beach below. He explained that he had taken the ring off to apply some lotion and placed the ring in his hat. Forgetting about the ring, he put the hat on and the ring went for a sand swim. He had walked 50 feet away before he realized what he had done, but when he retraced his steps, he could find it.
We hiked down the cliff and over 1/4 mile north on the beach to the search area. It took over 5 minutes to get my first target! Very clean beach in that area. After about 15 minutes or so, I got a good signal on my E-trac indicating it was a likely candidate to be his ring. Sure enough, Greg’s nice platinum band was in my scoop. A happy Greg wanted to keep his smile off camera but was willing to show the ring. Thank you for the reward Greg.
