Sentimental ring lost and found at Semaphore South Australia

Mary contacted me via facebook to ask if I thought it was possible to find a ring lost on New Years Eve while swimming. After a few questions it sounded like a fairly easy job and we agreed to meet up the following day at low tide. Given the time and rough depth of water when it was lost I was able to work out roughly how far down the beach to search while Claudia worked out a possible north and south boundary along the beach.

Once I had a rough area to work in I had a guess at a decent place to start and walked my first line. The first signal turned up around 3/4 of the way to the other boundary and after a quick dig in the sand out popped Claudia’s ring. So probably 10 minutes of set up time and 5 minutes of actual detecting. Ring found in Semaphore
