Lost Gold Ring at Natatorium War Memorial…FOUND!!
Friday, December 19, 2014
As I was returning from Metal Detecting on Scuba I surfaced in about 10 feet of water and began snorkeling into the beach. As I approached two young ladies I noticed that panicked look one gets when they lose something treasured. I asked the first young lady if they lost something and she responded that her friend Teuila had just lost her Gold ring and she was stressing. That’s when I raised my Excalibur from under water and said “Maybe I can help. Where did she lose it?” They showed me the general area and as I started the box search I asked, “Is this too far towards shore” and Teuila said, “Probably.” so I made a 90 degree turn and on the second sweep of my detector I had what could only be a Gold Ring tone. I knelt down and stuck my head in the water and through my mask the sun was glinting off a pretty gold ring. I stood up with ring in hand and yelled over to Teuila. “I might have your ring.” Shocked it happened so quickly she came over to where I stood and I said, “If you can describe the ring in my hand it’s yours.” She immediately described the ring and I reached out and dropped it into her hand. Then without hesitation she gave me the biggest hug I’ve had in a long time. A few cheers went up from the tourists in the water that realized I just found her ring. She said, “What are the odds that you would be here exactly when I needed your talents?” I pointed up and said “The Big Guy upstairs must of wanted you to have that ring. Glad I could help.”
