Johannes, Anna, their three children Filippa, Jakob, and Oshar were visiting Longboat Key for a Christmas vacation from Sweden. Johannes knew that his wedding ring was very loose and needed to be resized and had vowed to not wear it to the beach. On the day after Christmas he forgot all this and found himself out on the beach tossing a football back and forth with his son Jakob. He was standing right on the edge of the dry sand where the waves came up lapping at his feet. As he reached out to catch the ball he saw his ring slide off his finger and into the wet sand. He and about 30 other hotel guests spent an hour trying to find the ring and then someone suggested he contact SRARC ring finders. He googled the ring finders and found Howard Mets who contacted Mike Miller. Mike made arrangements with Johannes to meet and a couple of hours later he arrived at the hotel. Johannes and Anna met him at the lobby and let him to where they believed the ring would be. Earlier they had drawn a line in the sand pointing to where they believed the ring was. Mike lined up with the mark in the sand, took about five steps out into the water and hit a target. With one scoop, up came the ring and Mike turned and started walking back to the dry sand. Johannes couldn’t believe that it might have been found but when Mike extended the scoop and he looked inside there sat his ring. He his family and the whole beach erupted in cheers. We took pictures and with smiles on everyone’s face return to the hotel lobby and sat down for a happy visit with this wonderful family. What a Christmas joy to see the smiles on their faces and have a chance to meet new friends from across the pond.
