Happy Honeymoon


October 12, 2017 08:37am


I was at Doheney Beach the other day with my X-TERRA 705 Metal Detector. I was soon approached by a young couple from Sweden who said they were on their honeymoon. They told me the husband had lost his very expensive wedding band at the beach. Only thing was, they lost it at a beach about 5 miles up the coast in Laguna Beach.
