Car Key Lost at Santa Monica Beach, CA...Found and Returned.

  • from Redondo Beach (California, United States)

I had just finished dinner last night when I received a call from Cagil who had lost his car key in the sand at the beach. He had gone surfing, and buried his key at the high tide line so no one could find it while he was in the water. He had marked the area with a stick, in order to find it when he got out. What happened though was that while he was surfing, someone moved the stick, so he was unable to pin point the exact area where his key was. Cagil searched for over 2 hours, and was very frustrated at not being able to find his key, and the tide was rising. He then found me on The Ring Finders web site, and I told him I would be there as soon as I could get there.

When I got to the beach, I met Cagil’s friend Easy, who contacted Cagil, then we all went out to the spot where Cagil remembered burying his key. I began my search with no signal whatsoever. Cagil then directed me to another spot where he thought the key might be. I searched one side of the area with nothing, then I moved to the other side, and on the first pass got a solid signal. I scooped, and shook out the sand. There in the bottom of the scoop was the key. Needless to say, Cagil was very happy, not only because all of his belongings were in the car, but also the parking lot closed after dark, and he would have gotten a substantial ticket for having his car there. Well he was also able to finally get out of the wetsuit he had on for hours. It was very nice to be able to help him out last night, and see him happy when I left.
