Robert called, asking if I was available to help him find a silver cross in the sand at Victoria Beach, South Laguna. This was a sentimental keepsake that his wife had for many years and she was devastated with the thought that she would never see it again.
He could not meet me at the location as he had a meeting that next morning. For me it was not necessary for Robert to be there. His description of where they had been was clear and would be easy to find. All I had to do was be there early enough to beat any other detectorists to the beach. Besides I know there is a missing silver cross and nobody else knows that.
As I suspected, I reached the area to the right of the lifeguard tower and began my grid. Three passes and Boom! Robert’s wife’s cross in the scoop. Called Robert with the good news. Robert me met a few hours later picking up the cross and telling me that he was going to surprise his wife when he got home. I wish I could have seen that. Another fun search with a happy couple that I enjoyed helping.
