I like to metal detect the shallows (waist deep or less cuz I am not that great a swimmer) and I always wished I could afford a metal detector with a waterproof head. But life and kids seem to drain my wallet faster than alimony payments - so when I saw the Vibra King 750, I thought, hey, I can do that and decided to be reckless and selfish for a change and got me one.
The following Veteran's Day holiday saw the lake packed and I figured it'd be a great place and time to shoot afterward. So the following Wednesday, I went there and was floating in knee deep water when the machine vibrated and flashed. Using my Green Plastic Sand Scoop (SEGP4-SS20, which I will review later) I scooped up a woman's ring, with a beautiful blue stone, which I though was a sapphire (but what do I know). Happy happy. I figured I had more than made up the cost of the detector.
A little later, I saw a couple sifting through the sandy bottom. From their distraught expressions they seemed anxious to find something, but their shoulders were slumped in surrender as if resigned to the fact that they would never find it..
Well, stupid me, I struck up a conversation and learned that the husband was a Marine on leave and his new bride (of 1 week) who said they had partied over the weekend and she "thought" she might have lost her wedding ring in the lake. She described the ring - "a blue Marquis cut (that I knew about) sapphire with two tiny diamonds on the sides" perfectly. Dang it!
The look on their faces and their effusive thanks (a woman's tears of sheer gratitude have always reduced me to a sap) more than made up for any misgivings of surrendering my newfound treasure. In fact it didn't even occur to me.
I am thankful for the Vibra King for helping find the couples ring; but more, for filling my heart with the kind of satisfied joy of doing the right thing.
