I was on my way back from my morning search in Mission Viejo on Thursday, when I received a call from Elizabeth. Her husband Michael had been at the beach near their house playing with a local dog who was frolicking in the surf. Michael was at the water line when he moved his hand towards the water, and in an instant his ring flew off of his hand and was gone. He searched with futility for his ring that had been swallowed up by the ocean sands. Elizabeth found me on the Internet, and gave me a call. I asked my questions, and found out the loss had just happened in the last half hour, so I knew odds were very good for a successful recovery. We arranged to meet as soon as I could get to their place.
When I got there I met them both, and then Michael jumped in my truck, and off we went to the area of the loss. When we got there Michael showed me where he had set his land marks, and then showed me what he had done to cause the loss. I began right where he had showed me. I turned my detector on, and got some noise while I was passing through the water. Thinking I needed to ground balance to the salt water because of minerals I did so. When I swung again, the same tone, I dug, and in my scoop was his ring. Michael had put me right on top of his ring. I asked him what color it should be, he looked in the scoop and with surprise, and great joy agreed that I had found it. I took him back to his house when Elizabeth came out and gave me a big hug, and a tub of great vegetable soup that I ate when I got home. It was then I found out they had just gotten married 5 days earlier! What a great day!
