Gold Masonic Ring Lost at County Line Beach, CA...Found and Happily Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I was on my back home from finding the earring earlier when I received a call from Jeff. He had been surfing, but had brought the ring he had received from his late grandfather with him. So as not to lose it he put in his tight fitting wet suit. He came out of the water and began to remove the wet suit, when the ring popped out and landed in the sand. He searched for about an hour, but was unable to find it. He then searched the internet, and found me. I was about an hour away, and told him I was on my way. He had time constraints, seeing his friend was getting married tomorrow, and he had to be at the rehearsal later in the evening.

When I got there Jeff led me down to the spot of the loss. He had piled stones to mark it, and it assured me that we would be able to make a quick recovery. I could see that some of the shrubbery had been moved around, and the sand had been piled up in the center of the area. I proceeded to search where Jeff thought the ring may have landed. It wasn’t there, so I worked my way back. I searched the pile of sand where it looked like Jeff had done most of his  own searching, it wasn’t there either. I then started to work back almost behind where he had been standing when I received a good repeatable signal, dug once and missed it, dug a second time and in my scoop was a nice big gold Masonic ring, the ring he found among his grandfather’s belongings after he had passed away. This was so important to Jeff, a precious memory of his late grandfather, who he had just found out was a Mason , which also meant a lot to Jeff. I could tell the pride he had for his grandfather, and this made for a wonderful recovery. Also he still had time to make the rehearsal.
