West Yarmouth, MA Beach Holds Wedding Band Overnight Before Found & Returned

  • from Cape Cod (Massachusetts, United States)

July 3, 2024

With the upcoming 4th of July holiday and an opportunity to spend a few days in Vacation Land, Lou was not one to pass up such a combination. With great weather for enjoying one of the Capes many beaches it was a good time not to be passed up. In the pleasant water and with family and friends Lou was not paying any particular attention to the area he was in at the moment his wedding band slipped from his thinning finger. He searched looking at the shells and other creatures on the ocean’s floor, but did not find the ring.

Here is where friends and TheRingFinders work together. Pete was contacted, but could not help but did pass the info onto Leighton who also could not help due to his work schedule. So Leighton passed the info onto me. Hey, I am retired and live for the opportunity to help others. I contacted Lou and set up a sunrise meeting time. Three hours of searching and the tide was coming in and the wind getting stronger. I called it a morning. With all the good intentions of returning for the evening tide. That did not happen as the seas got rougher. So it was another early morning search on the calendar.

Friday morning came with water calm enough to search in. About 2 ½ hours later I was heading out to meet for another morning’s commitment. I was haphazardly searching closer to the shore line, on the way out for the morning, and about 5 feet beyond the area Lou had me searching in. A faint target I had just heard was one that I was not going to pass up on. It was a solid tone and a perfect dot on my detector’s ID screen. I am glad I did not pass it up as it was Lou’s ring.

I texted Lou and set up a 1pm meeting to return his ring. Another successful adventure and the pictures tell it all.
