I received a text from Akida last night about his lost ring, wanting to meet today for a search. He had been at the beach with a friend, and had removed his ring placing it on the blanket. After watching a beautiful sunset, it was now dark, and they decided to leave. Akida’s friend picked up and shook the sand off of the blanket, and of course the ring went flying, but by then it was too late, it was now hidden in the sand. I sent him a text back arranging a time when I would be able to meet him at the beach. We agreed on a time, and I arranged my time in order to meet him today.
When I got there Akida took me to the spot at the beach where the loss occurred. I began my search in an area that from what he had shown me was not very big, and began to find numerous pieces of metal, mostly bottle caps. I continued my search in the confined area where they had been sitting and the blanket first lifted up with no luck, so I began expanding out to where blanket had been shaken. It was then I got that sweet sound of gold in the headphones. I looked over to Akida and said that this was the best signal I had had during this search. One scoop, and I reached in and pulled out a shiny gold ring much to Akida’s delight. Wonderful smile to go along with a wonderful return. It sure is fun making people happy!
Akida sent the following to include here:
