Girlfriend Fishing Off Remote Island Catches Shell With Surprise Proposal | Happily TV

A woman fishing off a remote island in the South Pacific couldn’t believe her eyes when she reeled in a conch shell that led to a surprise proposal. Cole Harrison and his girlfriend, Steph – who are originally from the United States – travel the world surfing, diving and spear fishing, so Cole wanted to concoct a proposal that perfectly tied into their lives. Born and raised in Key West, Florida, Cole's nickname has always been "Conch," and so he thought that would be a perfect element to tie into his proposal. He and Steph have a conch shell horn they sourced in the Bahamas, and so, on December 22, 2023, Cole tied it to the end of a fishing line and threw it into the waters of an island in French Polynesia. Informing Steph he had caught something, Cole then waited for his girlfriend of six years to head to water and start reeling in the object. That provided the perfect moment for Cole to pull a smaller shell out of his pocket, with a black pearl engagement ring inside, which he presented to Steph as he got down on one knee. In the foreground, the couple's rescue dog, Finn, who travels the world with them, also leaped around with joy, sensing the scale of the moment.
