Lost Family Gold Necklace at Bellow’s Beach…FOUND!!!
This necklace hunt began when I got a call from Makana. While enjoying the day at Bellow’s Beach on Oahu’s East Shore Makana picked up a beach chair and carried it to a new location. Unbeknownst to him his girlfriend Makana…Yes both are named Makana! had placed the Gold Necklace in the chair’s puka and when it was moved and shaken of sand the Gold Necklace disappeared. The family members combed and raked the sand but the Gold Necklace was never found and that’s when they reached out to me. Ironically, I was heading in that direction to drop off my detecting buddy Terry so I told Makana I’d swing by and see what I could do. Makana was waiting on the roadside and saved a parking spot for me. We headed down to the beach and Makana introduced me to his family members. I could see the sand had been moved around quite thoroughly so the grid was pretty much known. I fired up the Nox and started my grid search. The beach was clean but the first target was a piece of aluminum. Then I got a very unusual tone and dug a lead fishing weight but that wasn’t what I heard. Sure enough there was a nice #3 still on that spot and in one gentle scoop there was Makana’s Gold Necklace dangling from my scoop. I heard a few sighs of relief and I handed the necklace to the nearest family member. Everyone was very appreciative and gave thanks. Aloha smiles for Makana & Makana!
