Yesterday at Sandbridge Beach, I noticed this gentleman and was wondering what he was doing. The beach was fairly clean so I thought he was clearing it of unnecessary debris. I striked a conversation with him while taking a walk and asked what he was doing.
He told me that he was looking for valuables, rings and like jewelries that fall from bathers or surfers. This time of year, around the holidays (today is Labor Day) and there are many events going on around like a marathon this weekend, the beach is filled with people. And some of them lose their jewelries in the water.
The electronic scanner he’s using probably runs on battery but it does make his life at the beach a breeze. At that time, his only luck was a penny. He said he does it only on weekends but when he retires he wants to do it full time.
Great excuse to be at the beach everyday!
