I had just got home and get a call to ponto beach. After asking all the stuff I need to know we set a meeting place and I’m on my way.
As we walk down the beach he tells me about a 10′ area and I know if he is right it will be a fast recovery. On about the 4 th or 5 th pass I look at him and all the others watching me as I swing over one spot. Scoop and there it is, a beautfull heavy Gold wedding ring. ” STOKED” Another person helped by TheRingFinders.com
If the sun lotion scenario is the #1 reason for losing a ring at the beach, this is probably #2. It’s the “I took the ring off and put into the chair pocket, forgot it was there, folded chair and packed everything up when we were ready to leave, drove away and then remembered the ring scenario”. Marcus didn’t get far….just out of the parking lot when he realized what he had done. He returned and searched to no avail. Out came the phone and a Google search. He found my ad on Craig’s list and gave me a call. I told him I would be there within the hour and met him at the location. We walked over the the spot where they had the chairs laid out (the most likely spot of the loss) and I started my grid. Maybe 30 seconds later, I get the sound I wanted to hear on my E-trac and scooped out his ring. A happy Marcus gets to go home, tell the wife, and not have to share the accommodations with the dog. A pleasure meeting you Marcus and thank you for the reward.
Got a lost ring call in the middle of saying goodby to a dear friend. Can u come right now? No but I will be down in 1 1/2 hrs. One hr later, can u come now ? So we were almost done so I said I would be there in 20 min.
I get to an over crowded beach and find parking, grab the PI and water scoop and head over. I am met half way by a very sad man. Its in the water, do you think there’s a chance of finding it ? Hell yes knee deep, no problem…
As I start my search there are a ton of people coming over to watch. He shows me where he was, or thinks he was. After about 10 min Im looking at tide line and I start working into the ankle deep area and low and behold, bang.. I scoop it and walk outa the water, turn to him and ask, Whats it look like… he he. ( YEP ) here you go.
Cheers from the crowd make it really cool, as we walk thru to our cars I hear, Great Job “RingFinder ”
I LOVE THIS FEELING.
