LOST GOLD WEDDING RING FOUND AND RETURNED, METTAMS POOL, PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA.
Ash and his family were enjoying the beach until just as they were leaving he had picked up his towel and sent his ring flying..
After realising that ‘looking’ for it wasn’t going to find it he resigned himself to getting the wife and kids home and consulting uncle Google for help. Google loves Ring Rescues and duly obliged him with my number.
When I got the call from Ash I asked if he could meet me back at Mettams Pool shortly. He’d said he could and (like so many others) swore he could put me right on the spot.
An hr or so later as we both looked down to the beach, I said to Ash “crikey” as the area was covered in people-lution!
Ash led me among the beachgoers to his ‘spot’ where we set about explaining the ‘dire situation he would be in with the wife if he were to return home without his ring, etc to the people there and luckily most were happy to help in moving here and there as I used my metal detector search the area.
Having not found the ring where it should be and not wanting to upset everyone’s day I suggested we take a break until people started to leave the beach for the day.
We returned later and I began extending the search area to the south. About 15 mins later I heard a loud but soft edged double tone in my headphones which was even in both directions and had a target I.D in the range I predicted for his ring so I called out to Ash.. “I reckon this is it.. or someone else’s!”
I waited till he arrived and sank to his knees beside me before I pulled the old ‘slow reveal’ trick.. I sweep away a layer of sand, no ring.. another layer, no ring.. another and a smile erupted on Ash’s face as we both saw the edge of his ring appear in the sand.
Then it was high fives all round (we’d drawn in a couple who’d watched the earlier search as well) and as you can see in Ash was pretty chuffed about it all.
It’s why I love what I do, that moment right there.. all the best Ash and co!
