Chair, shark and sand could not keep a ring hidden from The Ring Finder of Cape Cod, South Yarmouth, MA

The second day of a heat wave drove Karen and her family to the edge of cool waters and onshore breeze coming off the bay. There was no interest reading or heeding the posted sign about wearing shinny jewelry into the waters. On the beach, a protective layer of sunscreen was in order, but had no place in Karen’s shinny jewelry setting. Rings off, suntan lotion on and the day’s enjoyment began. The incoming tide necessitated moving the chairs to dryer ground. However the arms of the beach chair were not strong enough to hold onto Karen’s ring. The folding arms let the ring slip into the sharks realm.

An evening of searching by lanterns and hands could not coach the ring form its sandy resting place. A voice mail on my Ring Finder’s phone was answered and a 7am meeting to use a metal detector to locate the ring was set. As usual everyone had their idea of were the ring was. Here; No over there; Look for the stone! OK now we were narrowing in on “the” location. Wouldn’t you know, but four visitors looking to secure a prime piece of beach for the day had already claimed the area where the search should progress to. With out our asking, the four picked up and mover well beyond our area of search – Thank you guys. Well as things were going you have probably guessed it, no ring was to be found in that search area.

Moving outside the original box by only two feet up popped the shinny jewel encrusted awesome ring. The engagement and wedding band still bonded together. One that had no place in with the sand with its glittering jewels calling the sharks.

NOTE: Only unconfirmed shark sightings have been recorded in the area searched. But it sure made the blog a bit more than just: Ring Lost, Ring Found, Ring Returned posting.

    Quote from Karen’s Thank You:

    “I am still in shock that you found my ring 💍 on Colonial Acres Beach on Monday morning. I posted the story on my FB page and have had so many responses & comments praising you. One person thought you deserved to be the focus on a segment of the TV show Chronicle (channel 5!). You have a skill that helped me & so many others. And you are a genuine person – so refreshing. It was an honor to meet you. So I needed to say thank you once again.
    I wish you all the best.
    Karen XXXXXXX

    P.S. I’m glad we could be out there searching before the storm -& tornado 🌪!!!”
