I have a story to share,
I was metal detecting yesterday at Mission bay/Kohimarama, closing my beach season (5 hours and found only 4$ and scrap metal pendant).
About lunch time a young fellow approached me and told me that he has lost a rose gold&platinum
wedding ring about 2 month ago at St. Helliers. He also thought that it might has been stolen as he left it on the towel . I asked him if he claimed insurance on it and he didn’t and also it has great sentimental value for him- the Rose gold part is from same chunk that was used to make his Wife’s wedding ring. He also advised that he set a 500$ reward for the ring
I gave him my phone number and email address and asked to email me the Picture of the ring.
So last night I got an email from guy with attached poster:
Now, do you remember THIS post?
Here is a close up of the ring :
It was buried for 9 days. (see time stamp on my post Friday 17 Feb 2012)
it was found on the High tide mark in sea weed, He indeed lost it on dry sand .If it was just 2 meters closer to water- it would be sucked into the sea by high tide and dragged with tide in unknown direction or buried underneath meter(s) of sand
So today I have met the guy and reunited with the ring after 2 month separation.
Here is a pic of us:
And now I am half way through saving money for Minelab Excalibur 2 that I will use to recover more rings and stuff in water :-)
