*** Joseph had been at Lake Gregory in the Cirty of Crestline, CA. . The lake has sandy beaches that are well kept up. Its fenced off and a pay to enter beach and play area. He called me asking if I could help him find a Cuban Cut  Gold bracelet lost in the water last weekend. He told me he knew the exact location. Our first conversation was on Friday, thinking we could do the search on Saturday or Sunday. I told him the traffic up the mountain and weekend visitors at that location would hamper our search. 

We set up to do the search on Monday. It is a 80 mile drive for both of us coming from different locations in So. Calif. He would meet me at the 5000ft elevation near the recreation site. When we got to the south entrance gate it was closed. For a moment we thought the trip was wasted. Then we found out only one entrance was open on weekdays. The other entrance was about two blocks from the area where he felt his gold bracelet slip off his wrist.  After we got where he believed the loss occurred, mJoseph said he was having second thoughts about which lifeguard stand he was near. 

He called his girlfriend using FaceTime to get her opinion on the proper spot they had been. I set up my gear planning to search to a chest depth of water. We kept a low profile not to draw unnecessary attention. Visibility was not much, the bottom was sandy enough to hide a big gold chain. That was a good thing because it meant there was a good chance the gold chain could still be hiding. 10 minutes into the search I got a good signal. When I took a scoop in 4ft. of water, I saw a glint of gold mixed with the sand. It disappeared from the scoop but I know chains like to crawl out sand scoops. Another gentle dig with the sand scoop I had a heavy Cuban cut style gold chain to show Joseph. 

He gave me a big thank you and we walked off the beach without showing anyone what we had found. I was thankful that we did not get disturbed by curious onlookers. It did take a little coordination to put this search together. At the price of gasoline we didn’t need to make this a two trip ordeal.
