I still remember the day this gemstone washed up right next to where I was standing in the water. At first I thought it was a piece of sea glass, but upon further inspection, it appears to be a lost gemstone from the setting of a ring. Someone lost this, yet what are the odds of them finding something they once lost at sea?
It was June 2008, when I found the gemstone, the same day we had beached our lobster boat in order to perform a minor repair. Below is a picture I took that day.
Today, quite literally in the same area as the above picture, we spotted a lobster trap washed up on shore. Possibly due to the over 60 mph wind gusts we had here yesterday -- the same ones responsible for last night's power outage.
For some reason, Henri decided to check to see if it could, quite possibly, be the trap we lost back in October when we were on our last haul of the season.
