MAN’S WHITE GOLD AND DIAMOND WEDDING BAND FOUND AND RETURNED MYRTLE BEACH
I had just finished mowing the grass when I looked at my cell phone and realized that I had missed a call. Checking my voicemail, I learned that Courtney had left me a message about a lost wedding band in Myrtle Beach. When I call him back, he told me that they had just left the beach to check in to their accommodations. I told Courtney to go check in and meet me back at the beach in an hour. Low tide was in 30 minutes, and I did not want to miss that window. He had lost his wedding band in thigh deep water, and it would not be long before we would have to wait two tide cycles to have another shot at it.
I got to the beach ahead of Courtney, and his Wife Keeosha, and started at the water’s edge. Gridding parallel to the water I kept going deeper with each pass. Courtney came down to the beach and narrowed my grid search by 15 yards. In a few more passes I got a great sounding tone, and a nice looking painted 24 on the Target Trace of my Manticore. In thigh deep water my sand scoop found Courtney’s lost wedding band. As I came out of the water, I told Courtney that my metal detector was messed up. I watched his face turn from expectation to disappointment. I then explained that it was messed up because it would only find gold with diamond rings, as I let him pluck his wedding band from the bottom of the sand scoop. This was Courtney’s first day of vacation. I’m sure this helps he and Keeosha enjoy the rest of their visit to the Grand Strand of South Carolina.
