Wallet lost at sea 8 months ago found washed up on B.C. beach | CBC News

A woman walking with her dogs on a British Columbia beach made a surprising discovery among the trash that washed up with the tide — her own long-lost wallet.

Marcie Callawaert said she and her dogs were on the beach of the remote island where she and her husband live near Tofino when she spotted something familiar in the sand.

Callawaert, who chronicled her discovery on TikTok, said she had dropped the wallet into the water while boarding a boat in June 2023.

“Where we live, we don’t have a dock and we have to canoe to our anchor buoy where the boat is,” she¬†told the Westerly News. “I had my wallet in an unzipped pocket of my backpack, I had forgotten to zip it. When I went to hop into the boat from the canoe, I heard a splash but I just assumed it was the way the water was splashing and I didn’t think anything of it.”

Callawaert said she had a diver search for the wallet shortly after it was lost, but they had no luck.
