My wife woke me early this morning; my phone was ringing. I did not get to it in time to answer, but waited to see if the person calling would leave a message, he did. It was Matt, who had lost his ring at the beach the night before. I called him back immediately and we talked a bit, and from what he explained to me I thought his ring may be gone for good. The beach is one of the cleanest beaches in Southern California because the County cleans it daily with sifting machines that pick up virtually everything. I let him know that if he would meet me there in 30 minutes, that I would leave right away in order to try and beat the machines.

When I got there, I could see Matt out in the sand doing what I have termed, “the lost ring shuffle”, where someone is trying to find their ring by dragging their feet through the sand in grid lines. When I got out to him, I could see where the sifter had taken a swing very close to his grid lines, and also out on the towel line closer to the slope. He explained to me that he believed the sifter had gone outside the possible loss area. I set up to grid, turned my machine on, took one swing, got a good signal, put the scoop in and dumped the sand, and there peeking out was the ring. I reached down, grabbed it, and held it out to Matt, who was in total disbelief. He had told me that the night before he gave the ring to his wife to hold while he went to the water with their child. While he was gone his wife was dealing with their beach equipment when the ring fell off her finger, and was gone in the sand. She had a hard night, feeling guilty for the loss, but today all joy is restored. What a great morning. I then went home and had my breakfast and coffee.
