Operation Ring Retrieval – Success! Please notice how I put the ring in my pocket for dramatic effect during our photo re-enactment. Hey, just trying to keep it interesting around here.
Obviously, this was the best part of the day. The sun wasn’t so harsh, I had my ring and we could fool around with the metal detector looking for other treasures. Unfortunately, all SAJ found was the nickel I threw in the sand earlier to test the sensitivity of the detector. I secretly wish I wouldn’t have returned Metal Detector 1.0 for future treasure hunts. Oh well…
When I arrived at the beach earlier and spent some time mapping out my plan, Arnie the lifeguard suggested using a colander to help sift through the sand. Luckily, SAJ hadn’t left her house yet, so I called and asked if she would bring a colander.
When she arrived at our spot, I had already found the ring and completed my numerous victory laps around the sand. Did I mention Arnie the lifeguard brought tons of orange cones to block off my Operation Ring Retrieval area? He was the best.
Little did we know that the colanders would be such a hit with the kiddos. Wito was obsessed with red one – he couldn’t get enough of it. These are my favorite photos of the day. Thanks to SAJ for capturing the shots!
