I got a call from a gentleman from Alaska who was vacationing in Southern California. He was calling for Naim who was also vacationing in Southern California, only Naim was here from Paris, France. He had been at the beach with a friend, and wanted to go in the water, so he took his rental car key, wrapped it in a plastic bag, and buried it so no one would take it while he was away. The problem occurred when he was ready to leave. He and his friend grabbed their belongings, and walked off to the car to leave, only to find that they had left the key in the sand. They immediately went back, and searched the sand, but were unable to find the key. It is very hard to pinpoint an area in the sand after having left for even a short while. I let them know I was on my way.

When I got to the beach I met Naim and his friend. They showed me where they had been digging and combing the sand, so I began my search there. I covered the complete area without finding the key. I let Naim know that I would expand the search area which relieved him because he knew it had to be there. I continued my grid, and after 2 passes dug up a plastic bag. I reached down, and pulled it up, and there was the key wrapped up nice and tight. Naim was very happy. He was going back to Paris in just a few days, and I was glad to give him a bit of American hospitality.
