Two weeks shy of their 2nd wedding anniversary, the husband had been flying his kite when he noticed his solid gold, 24 karat wedding band had somehow slipped off his finger and fallen into the deep dry sand. His ring is an exact match of his wife’s ring, both solid Indian gold. After searching all afternoon with his 10 friends, the husband could not sleep last night. We came back to foggy Half Moon Bay beach this morning, and walked to just south of the state park, where he had wisely marked the search area with a large pile of sand.
I began a systematic spiral search pattern radiating out from his marker pile. After about an hour, and after finding 9-10 beer bottle caps and other debris, about 25 feet from the center marker, I detected what sounded like a quarter. Expecting to add an old coin to the day’s finds, his glittering solid gold band appeared in my scoop! Solid gold has a deep rich, magnificent texture and color, there is nothing else like it.
This happy couple requested to be anonymous, but agreed to allow me to publish photos of their matching solid gold wedding bands. Happy 2nd Anniversary!
Any day is a great day after a successful recovery. We went our separate ways this morning with a deep feeling of happiness and gratitude in our hearts. Nothing beats a successful recovery on a Sunday morning!
