    I lost my black oakleys. They have an O that is removable on each side. Here is a pic...

    I lost a pair of inexpensive sunglasses near One Seagrove a few weeks ago when I was hit from behind by a bigger than expected wave (flags went to red the next day). We joked that someone would probably find them someday, but that they were lost to me forever. I'm sure dozens of beach goers lose their glasses to Mother Ocean every day! Hope your make their way back to their owner!

    Sorry for the delay; I (sadly) had to travel back home yesterday and just now saw these.

    Geo - no Oakleys in what we found.

    Luvthebeach - we were within a mile of 1 Seagrove and 3 of these were black, inexpensive retail brands (1 doesn't even show a name brand anywhere). Did yours have a brand name or perhaps a unique design "pattern"?

    Based on other debris we found including many beer cans, we think an inflatable "party barge" got flipped over somewhere, maybe as far as Cozumel or Key West based on all of the seaweed wrapped around some of the items.

    Near the ATL and in SoWal as often as possible
    Everytime, it's really nice that you are trying to track down someone who has lost his/her sunglasses. They're expensive, especially if they're prescription.

    I was playing in one of the haystacks and lost my favorite needle. If you have seen it, please let me know.

    The pair that I lost in the water luckily was inexpensive, no name brand. But because they were inexpensive I'm not worried about it, but it is fun to think that they may have finally washed up lol. It is very nice of you to try to find the owners, it's good to know that none of them seem to be very expensive!

    Hope you had s wonderful visit! We always do!!

    There is ONE nice pair, not prescription but as much or more than prescription, but no one has described them! The others each probably sold for $10-$30 new. The nicest sunglasses I've ever owned are my $80 Nike Tailwind running sunglasses that I bought at Costco for $38, and one of the nose pads just came off.

    But yes, just trying to help AND see if they may have been part of some epic party barge capsize!

    That's easy. First you have a horse eat the haystack, then you x-ray the horse.

    No duffle bag of $100's either, I suppose. Maybe if I offer a $25 reward...
