Lost Apple Watch in Sand at Doheny State Beach ..Dana Point, CA. .. Found and Returned
*** Marisa had spent the weekend at Doheny State Beach campgrounds, Dana Point, CA. After returning to her home in San Diego, CA. she realized her Apple Watch was missing. She was sure it had to be at the beach in front of where she had camped.
Marisa thought maybe she could rent a metal detector and drive back 60 miles the next morning. During the process of searching for a metal detector, she found my contact information doing a google search.
She called me late that Sunday evening. After telling me that she had taken her Apple Watch off putting it into a small jacket pocket. She was sure it probably fell out of the pocket on the sloping sand in front of the campsite. I explained that I could drive to the location before dark and it wouldn’t be necessary for her to meet me there.
Everything went well, I got to the campsite with enough daylight to search the steep sandy slope which was about a 30ft x 40ft zone. Fifteen minutes into the search I was able to find the watch with my metal detector.
I called Marisa to hear the joy in her voice when I told her I had her watch safe in my care. We discussed the possibility of mailing it to her. I just don’t like trusting the mail. I already had another errand to do in San Diego. So I met her the next day to personally give her the watch. No waiting to 2 or 3 days for the mail to get delivered. Also, I was happy to get my other errand taken care of while in San Diego. Plus I know a place where I can get the best burritos in the southland.
On my trip home I got another ring call in Laguna Beach.
