Yuxi called last night, she had lost her engagement ring while cleaning the sand off of her belongings. She said she would wait at the beach, and I told her I would be on my way immediately. She sent me a text with the area she was at, and I knew the parking lot was closed for the night, so I would have to park pretty far from the area.

When I got to the beach, being Friday night at a very popular beach, I had to park over 1 mile away. Fortunately I have a Segway MiniPro, so I grabbed my equipment, hopped on the Segway, and headed down the bike path with my headlight turned on. When I got to the spot, I saw Yuxi looking at her phone and asked if she was waiting for someone to help find her ring, and she said she was. I must have been a sight to her, 6 foot standing another 6 inches taller on a moving platform with all my equipment, lights and all. She took me over to the area, and showed me where she thought it was lost, Which was maybe 8 x8 feet square (not very large). I could see a bunch of sand that had been scraped out, and a slight hole, so I started there. The ring was not there. I made another pass, and got a good signal outside of the dug out spot, put the scoop in, and found Yuxi’s ring. She was very happy. She and her fiancé Chenglong have matching engagement rings, so it would have been very disappointing for her to lose hers. I got some pictures, and we talked a while, they were so happy! I then hopped back on my Segway for my trek back down the bike path to my car, a very joyful evening indeed!
