Our morning correspondent Ed Coleman who walk the beach in Wildwood most morning and post great videos and photos of our beautiful island found a pair of prescription sunglasses on the beach Sept 28th.
On Oct 11th we received a message on Facebook that the glasses were lost by a lady who lives in New Mexico. We are packaging them up and will get them shipped out to her. What’s the chances you loose your prescription sunglasses while on vacation at a beach and they are found unbroken and posted on a local socal media facebook page and the owner is found? We are happy to be able to reach so many people that we could make this happen. We would like to thank Ed Coleman for finding them and posting, he is the reason the owner found them on our page.Thanks Ed.
