Julie was enjoying the warm waters of Honeymoon Island State Park when a wave took her Cocoa Mint designer prescription sunglasses off her face. She searched for awhile in the waist deep water for her glasses but was unable to locate them. Julie then posted on one of the local social media groups called Dunedin Discussions to see if anyone had found the glasses and I saw her post and reached out to her. We set up a search for the next day.

I met Julie on the beach the next day and she directed me to the area where she lost her sunglasses. I began in waist deep water and worked my way in towards the shore and up to the wet sand with my detector. After about a 1 1/2 hour search including searching the dry sand up to where Julie was sitting on the beach, I was unable to locate her glasses. Julie had to leave the beach to meet up with her family so I told her I would continue the search. I returned to the water and searched about an hour more, expanding the search area in all directions from my initial search location. I then came out of the water in order to head home for a break and realized that my hand held detecting pinpointer was missing. I had inadvertently left it in my pocket when doing the sand search and it probably came out when I got back in the water. Now I was looking for two items instead of one! I returned once again to the water and after searching briefly, I found Julie’s sunglasses and they were undamaged! I immediately  contacted her and sent her a photo of her recovered glasses. Needless to say, she was extremely happy and I returned them to her about an hour later. Unfortunately I never recovered my pinpointer but it’s all good!

Julie, it was a pleasure meeting you and being able to return your sunglasses.
