Found Ring at Huntington Beach, CA
I was working in Southern California for a few months so I had the opportunity to Metal Detect at Huntington Beach. Huntington Beach had been my beach of choice when I grew up in Southern California. Lots of good memories there.
I was detecting just on the North side of the pier at low tide on Sunday and found a class ring. San Gabriel Mission High School Class of 2018. The name on the ring was Maddi and it had an inscription inside the band that said…Breathing dreams like air. A line from The Great Gatsby poem by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
The next day, Monday, I called the school to tell them I had found a students’ ring. The person on the phone said we have Maddi working in the office this Summer. Let me have her call you back. My phone rang right away. Maddi said “I can’t believe you found my ring. I wasn’t supposed to be at the beach and my Mom said to not wear it at the beach. I’ve only had it 2 weeks and I’d already lost it. I’m in so much trouble.” I asked her what the inscription said. “Breathing dreams like air” was her answer. I said Maddi I have your ring and I will bring it to the school at lunch time. The San Gabriel Mission HS was only 15 minutes from my work. Maddi was so happy and grateful to have her class ring back. She would be a senior when school began in the Fall. Good Luck Maddi
