    Another 4 ring day plus a couple in need

    I went to the beach for an extremely long hunt. I get there for low tide and my second target is the 925 ring with the purple stone. I did a small grind around the ring and found nothing else so I just kept walking. I zigzag all over till I made it the spot that where I have been finding all my coins for the last two hunts. I hunted that place for a few hours and pulled about $5 in change. After I wasnít getting anymore signals I decided to head back from where I came. I decided to head over to the dry sand and also dump all my junk in the trash. As soon as I got to the trash can I get a loud signal and the necklace pops out, unfortunately thereís no markings but at least itís not magnetic. I keep making my way to where I parked pulling a penny here and there. As Iím chugging along at a much slower paced now since Iím exhausted I have this guy run up to me. He tells me that his fiancť lost her ring last night, they looked for it with the phone light but it was too late already. They came back very early morning with sifters trying to find but to no available. They already have a section mapped out where they think it was lost so I get to work. I decide to go a little beyond where they thought it was lost but they tell me that they donít believe it would be anywhere else. After two passes in different directions I havenít found anything. I tell the guy Iím going to try going towards the water and outside their perimeter, by this time I can tell the wife is really sad and she walks away to try and trace here steps and see if she didnít lose it somewhere else. A few minutes after she leaves and ten feet from where they thought it was lost a get a really nice gold tone on the Excalibur and out pops outs their ring. Heís very excited and hugs me and tries to wave his back but. She comes back quickly and sees the ring and immediately hugs with excitement. The ring belonged to his mom so it meant a great deal to both. I ended up with about $8 in change, two junk rings, one 925 ring, the necklace and a story to share. Thanks for reading and happy hunting.
