What to do if you lose an engagement ring in a lake.
I headed to Sebago Lake in Naples, Maine after receiving a call to recover this beautiful heirloom engagement ring. Emily’s mother entrusted the ring to Charlie when he asked for her daughters hand in marriage. At sunset the previous evening this young couple were on the dock of the camp the whole family had rented, when Charlie decided to pop the question. Taking a knee he inadvertently opened the box upside down, and the ring fell out slipping between two deck boards and settling several inches into the silty bottom in 8 feet of water. The recovery took only about 15 to 20 minutes, upon returning the ring, I insisted Charlie finish the task. By the way she said yes. The couple now officially engaged are returning home to Delaware, with the first of many true life marital adventure stories to look back on and chuckle about as they build a life together.
