I had been resting yesterday afternoon when I received a call from Gabriel about a lost ring at the beach. His girl friend had wisely taken her ring off in order go in the water and wrapped it her shirt, leaving it on the towel. Gabriel, not realizing the ring was in the shirt, picked it and towel up in order to dry himself off, and the ring was gone. They searched for it to no avail. He said they were still at the spot, and had it cordoned off. I knew that the ring should be found because the loss had just happened, and they had not left the spot of the loss, so I let them know I would be there as soon as I could make it.
I had to park 3/4 of a mile away, so I boarded my Segway Mini Pro to travel the distance down the strand, with detector in hand and scoop in backpack. I arrived at the spot and met Gabriel. He took me out to the area, and I began my usual questions. I narrowed the spot from his description, and began my search. Within 30 seconds, I had the prettiest little silver ring in my scoop. I held it out to Gabriel, who couldn’t believe it could be found so fast. His girl friend Mariah was gone for a while, and was due back shortly. I wanted to see her reaction when her ring was shown to her. It was at that moment that Gabriel told me that he had bought the ring for her just the day before at a Disneyland store. How cool is that? What great smiles, and happy people; what a joy.
