Surfer Loses Wedding Ring in Sand .. 1000 Steps Beach, South Laguna Beach, CA. .. Found and Returned

  • from Newport Beach (California, United States)

While searching for a wedding rings lost at Salt Creek Beach I received a call from Keoni. He was located at 1000 Steps Beach and had just discovered that his tungsten wedding ring had fallen out of his backpack. It had to be one of two places, as he had to move his belongings when the high surf came up on to the dry sand.

Keoni was late for an appointment and had to leave the beach. I told him that I knew the beach well and assured him I could get to the area of the loss with the directions he had given me. It was less than a mile from where I was when he called.

After a finding the first set of rings sooner than I thought, Drove to 1000 Steps Beach. It is only a couple hundred steps to the beach and going down is easy. Then I walked over to the location near the volleyball court where I used the photos that Keoni had texted me to start my grid. Picking a spot to start my grid, it took about 45 minutes to find Keoni’s ring.
The ring was found within two feet of where I started the grid search. It would have been just a few minutes if I had gone north instead of south.

I contacted Keoni and arranged to drop off his ring at his house as it was on my way home. He was very grateful for having his wedding ring returned. I think you can see by the smile in his photo.
