Editor’s Note: Amy Wade, Beach Junki, and Fort Clinch volunteer is known for capturing wildlife photos in and around the beaches of Fort Clinch. Her latest “capture” tops them all! Her story follows:

“I wanted to share a cute lost and found story. This past Thursday I found dentures on the beach at the Fort near the fishing pier.

He lives in Yulee and has a wedding to attend in a few weeks and was stressing about it.  He said I was God sent. His wife was giggling the whole time when we met and said she had been for the last 2 days because he had to walk around with no teeth.I think she had warned him about going surf fishing in the ruff winds and waves. I know it was an embarrassing situation but it’s a funny one. He is very lucky and thankful I found them.”
