Trish phoned up this morning after losing her ring swimming yesterday afternoon in Semaphore a popular beach location west of Adelaide. I caught up with her husband Jim today at low tide and we worked out the best search area and how far down the beach it was likely to be.
I started about 5m out of the search area and worked my way down to the water searching about 20m lines each way. After several bottle tops, a pull tab, some junk jewellery and a few coins I picked up that nice rounded, mellow gold sound with a big target just below the surface. I only had to reach in about 1″ of sand and there it was.
A quick wash in the water to remove the sand and it was back with Jim just as Trish turned up to see how we were going. Huge smiles everywhere and a hug from Trish for another successful search at Semaphore.
After that I popped down south for another ring, but unfortunately they couldn’t get down there to give me a rough location so will put that one off for another day.
