Gold Charm Found at Grand Haven

  • from Grand Haven (Michigan, United States)

Grand Haven puts on one of the best fireworks displays on the 4th of July anywhere in West Michigan.  Thousands of people flock to Grand Haven and the Grand Haven State Park that day.  By 11:00 a.m. the Sate Park was full and I was turned away and unable to spend the day detecting at my favorite beach.  At 7:00 p.m. Devin, from Detroit, called me from Grand Haven State Park and said he lost the gold charm from his necklace on the volleyball court and asked me to please come find it.  I’m thinking there’s no way I’m getting near the State Park this late in the day; the police would already be setting up road blocks and barricades to direct traffic in and out of the waterfront area; but I’m willing to give it a try.  After several detours and roadblocks, I was able to get into the State Park about 2 hours before sunset as people left the park and head to the other side of downtown for the fireworks show.  After meeting up with Devin at the volleyball courts I see they have a 6′ circle marked out in the sand at one corner of the court where he says he lost the charm.  With the very first sweep of my coil I was able to find the charm!  Everyone on the court broke out in cheers!  Without doubt this was the quickest recovery I’ve ever made  🙂
