beach haven NJ – LBI – cross and chain lost in the sand

Larry sent me a message later in the evening about his sons cross and chain that were lost in the sand on LBI that day. He was sure of the location but was unable to find them because apparently they sunk deep into the sand. It was pretty late to go that night, so we arranged to meet EARLY the next morning. He drew me a map with all the details to where he and his family were set up, including approximate measurements from all fixed landmarks. I arrived around 5AM and headed out to the spot that was marked. I started to grid out one area when I saw the headlights of the beach rake, knowing my time was limited, quickly working the first spot with no luck. I checked my map again and decided to move south about 20′ and Bingo!!! there it was. Luckily the beach rake had only made 1 pass along the high tide line, before I was able to locate his sons beautiful chain and cross. I guess we could def. call it a “treasure map”. Just as I was snapping a few pics Larry was walking down the dune walkover, and was totally amazed I found them already. Another happy ending.
