With sun screen lotion applied and ready for a great game of Spikeball Thomas was ready to enjoy his vacation get away. Not only was he ready so was his ring. His ring had been waiting for two years for a short bit of freedom to frolic on a sandy beach for a day. A quick spike at a ball and then it took its chance.

Several hours of looking and hand sifting of the sand did not reveal the ring’s hiding place. A call to a Ring Finder … and I was on my way. Within 20 minutes I was talking to Thomas face to face. A short walk to the beach and Thomas was pointing out where the blanket was, where Spikeball was played, and the area where he had swam.

Low tide was now, so I started the search at the water’s edge and progressed up the beach’s slope. At the top of the slope was the area where Spike Ball was played and Thomas’s wedding band had made its escape. The dry sand was to be my second area to search. The entire beach had been cleaned with a beach rake and I could see not only my tracks of the tight search pattern I was holding but also Thomas’s footprints. As I passed my coil over Thomas’s footprint I head the signal that was unmistakably from a desirable target. Two scoops, a spread of the sand pile, and there was a “clunk clunk” from my scoop. I knew I had the item I was searching for, Thomas’ ring. To my surprise 5/12/18 was inscribed in side…my birthday May 12th.

I walked back to Thomas’s cottage and rinsed off my gear, and took a few notes after giving Thomas his ring. I had forgotten to pick up my camera and cell phone that were charging and my unfinished fresh cup of coffee when I left home. Thomas came to my aid and took the pictures needed for this story and offered a cup of coffee. Happy vacation days can now continue with smiles and a new vacation story to tell.

Ah, but don’t you just love all of our electronic gadgets? Cell phones, computers, e-mail, texting, the information available on the internet, yes these sure can help when help is needed. Communications for help in finding a lost wedding band started via e-mail through TheRingFinders website and was followed by phone conversations. Phone call area coverage was not as perfect as we expect it to be which cause a bit of delay. Well, when it all came together, I was heading out for a search.

Only one problem stood in my way…permission to detect the private resort property. Having been to the resort before I know I did not want to search the area without permission. New personnel this year were not quite sure about granting me access. After getting in contact with the “office”, I was in. Let the search begin.

The wind was very brisk and as such the waves were about 3 feet high and the blowing sand felt like I was in a sand blaster. I had dressed accordingly and with a marked up Google picture from Scott of the area where the ring had been lost I headed to the smaller “High Probability” area. Oh, no…all the beach lounge chairs had been pulled up and stacked close to the dunes covering the majority of the marked area. Anyway I had to get to searching. First I detected as close to the chairs as I could while watching the waves inching their way up the slope of the beach. No targets there so it was now that I had to venture as far into the water I dare go or wait until the next day and calmer water. It was not long, about 10 minutes, and there it was the shining wedding band in my scoop. It did not take long to get back to the comfort of the car. On the way out I stopped at the reception desk and thanked the “team” for granting me access and ensured them I was successful in finding the ring and would be returning it to Scott.

July 2019

Well, it was a typical 4th of July weekend. The first call for help came with a story about the ring tagging along. The easiest way to tell this is to copy the Thank You note for finding and returning James’ claddagh ring.

Rick,

My father bought me this ring 10 years ago. My grandfather had just passed away and had given his ring to my brother, the oldest boy in the family. So, my father took me when getting that one sized to get one of my own.
A few weeks ago, at my brother’s wedding, nobody remembered the wedding bands, not me, my brother, sister-in-law, planner, nobody. So when the priest asked for the rings, I turned my back to the crowd and slipped off my ring and my brother did the same. They used these to bless their marriage. I was devastated to lose mine. I cannot thank you enough.

James
