Jeff a family friend of Kate to whom we, Luke and I, found and returned a ring to last year needed our assistance this year. Jeff had taken his ring off to apply sun screen and “safely” placed it in a pocket from which it somehow found its way into the damp sand.
How did Jeff reach out for help? It was Jeff’s good fortune that he had taken a picture of Luke’s “TheRingFinders” shirt last year which has Luke’s phone number on it. Jeff called Luke who was in Rhode Island at the time. Luke in-turn called me for help. About 15 minutes later I was getting my gear ready for the search. Jeff met me at the car park and we walked to the beach. A quick reminisce of last year’s events and a quick overview of where his ring should be and I was on the hunt. The first signal was a fresh beer bottle cap, the second was Jeff’s ring. Total search distance searched was ten feet covered in less than one minute and in less than half an hour from the time I left home I was home again. This search resulted in one of the fastest returns, if not the fastest I have been involved in.
Once again all is well on the home front.
Two last bits; First, I must apologize for the out of focus photo. Second, I should have checked before leaving the beach, second… Until next year, enjoy!
