Rhonda and her friends were having a Girls Getaway week at Emerald Isle, NC. The young women were soaking their toes along the coastline and moving their chairs back with the incoming tides. Trying to be safe, the rings were placed in a zipper pouch before heading into the water. It wasn’t long after that the pouch had a hole in the bottom and the rings slipped away into the surf. Ashlee, a friend in the group, found my metal detecting service and gave me a call. After I heard the description, and knew the tide was now receding, I decided to give it a try. Upon arrival, the beach had a steep slope leading down into some powerful waves. I did my best to cover the area and was tossed off balance more than once. After not finding the rings, I told the party I will return about 1 hour before low tide and try again. Trying once again at this time period was very beneficial. With some directional help from the girls, I walked straight down towards the waterline and found both rings in the wet sand and within 5 minutes of each other! I know more than one of them thought the rings were gone forever!
This job has a very unique way of turning frowns upside down! A true memory all girls will now have to share in a joyful way!
