Love locks

I think the date says November 30, 1985, almost 4 decades ago,

The tide has risen, the tied has ebbed over 25,000 times since then.

The love lock rests on a sign post facing the bay, a bit rusty, but still holding. A couple likely placed this there themselves, many years ago. (It might have been there for decades, though. The bay is unforgiving.

Where are they now?
