It was a beautiful day at Ocean Beach. Danny was surfing. When got out of the water, and he went to shake his towel, his wedding ring went flying on the beach!
Moments later, my regional ringfinder buddy, Dave Millman, received the following urgent text:
I lost my gold men’s wedding band at Ocean Beach today, around 3pm. The ring has lower-case initials engraved inside: “ala + dgj”
My location at the time of loss is below. I did not go far from this spot – I believe the ring fell from my bag either at this spot or in between it and the grassy embankment directly east of here.Please let me know if you are able to help. -Danny
One hour later, I was on Ocean Beach with my gear. Conditions, sunny, 59f degrees , wind gusting onshore 10-20 mph.
Danny met me on the beach with his wife Alex. Danny showed me when he thought he lost his ring. I stuck my shovel in the sand and began a circular search pattern around that point.
On my fourth circle I found Danny’s wedding band. It was buried about 2 inches in the loose sand.
They were stunned when I found it. The beautiful inscription, “ala + dgj”, left no doubt that this ring belonged to Danny.
Another happy outcome ….. so fun to help out.
The sooner you call the better our chances of recovering your ring!
