I received a call from a young man Wednesday evening, explaining how he had lost the electronic key to his Mercedes, and asked if I would be able to help. It had happened just a couple of hours before, so I knew the likelihood of a recovery was good. We arranged to meet within a half hour, and I was on my way.
When I got there he explained that he had left the key on his towel when he went into the water, and when he picked up the towel, the key vanished. He and his friends had searched the area quite thoroughly before I got there, as I could tell by the grid lines in the sand where he took me to. I began my search, and came up with numerous bottle caps and other metal debris, but no key. It was then when I got out of the search area, that I got a good hit in my head phones, and dug. There in my scoop was the key, which when seen, caused the young man to run over an greet me with shouts of joy and hugs. It must have been a sight to see. He did not want his picture taken, but his friend volunteered for a picture. A fun day indeed.
