Caroline called last night after losing a very sentimental ring down at Seacliff, a popular southern beach in Adelaide. Unfortunately it was lost while walking the dog so the search area was huge. We had a bit of a chat trying to work out the most likely areas and even then the search area was about 150m x 50m which is nearly 2 acres.
I separated that area into 3 sub searches, nothing in the first, then 2 hours searching the main walking area- nothing, then only left with the path Caroline would have walked onto the beach from the car. Nothing in the first pass, turned around to head back, walked 2m and there it was. Hiding about 4″ under some powder soft sand was this beautiful and precious ring. Caroline couldn’t believe her luck and looked a little in shock, but the smiles took over she is one very happy, relieved lovely lady.
This search was tricky simply because of the large area involved but with a little detective work and some perseverance we got there.
