Yarmouth, Cape Cod, Massachusetts Lost Ring Found and Returned
August 14, 2021 Cape Cod, Massachusetts Lost Ring Returned in Sand Found and Returned
Dang, if applying sunblock is not the cause that more people have their ring slip from their finger I don’t’ know what is. Not the case with Mark. He had removed his ring and placed it safely on his lap but a sudden call from his son and a quick turn caused the ring to slip off his lap and into the sand. After two hours of looking with no ring to be found it was time to call for help from someone, but who?
A chat with the gate keeper, Mark’s hope was heightened, he was told to call the RingFinders, and he did. I got the call and made arrangements to meet up with Mark before he left for home. I then called fellow RingFinder Leighton and together we started a long day of detecting as we met up with Mark and were shown the area where the ring sank into the soft sand. Leighton held back from starting to search the was to give me a head-start. Why? The day before we were starting a search for a necklace. Before starting I helped move a large log from the area. My bad, as within 4 seconds Leighton had unearthed the necklace. So he was going to give me the first search at some of the area.
As is the case many times, the ring was not found until the both of us had search the immediate area and then enlarged the search beyond the area we were told the ring should be in. Not bad, it was only about 15 feet east of the initial search area. Now Mark could return to finish packing for the trip home from the Happy Vacation Land on Cape Cod. Of course it was to be a happy ending to a vacation. And the ride home was sure to be in a car of happy people in that husband / father had his wedding band returned. Great memories for a wonderful week.
