Not real sure how this came about or happened. Ashley & I got up and shot sunrise, checked some things out blah blah blah and the next thing you know Ashley, Boston & I were headed to Beach Road. It will be fun they said. You’ll see wild horses they said. What they didn’t say was take your tires down to 20psi. What they didn’t say was there is no rhyme or reason to driving down the beach. What they didn’t say was stay out of the fresh sand. (Right, I should have known that one) This photo was taken the first time we got stuck. (Thank you Ashley Olvey) After this we managed to get stuck again, as well as getting two others stuck. Heated up the transmission nicely & never saw a wild horse. Was it stressful?! Hell yes! However, the awesome people we met, Kevin from Maryland was a lifesaver & his father Rich said I wasn’t too dumb 😉
Hey Ashley, remember that one time we got stuck on beach road?!
Today was the last day of vacation and the last day for me to catch the sunrise. I had missed it every other morning, so I had to get it this morning. I woke up early and headed down with Hannah, Hillary and Josh. Hillary and Josh wanted me to get photos of them together before we left so it worked out well. I got a beautiful sunrise and got to take photos of them. And then they asked for the stereotypical, holding hands on the beach, photo. So I snapped it quickly and moved on. And then I looked at it and found it had turned out to be a beautiful combination.
It was another great day of vacation. We got to see the beautiful Brookgreen Gardens and then we spent the rest of the day at Huntington Beach SP. Our vacation is almost over, but it has been a great time. I’ve had a lot of fun and it’s been great to relax and hang out with Hannah and her family. While we were at the beach, I took a walk with Hannah and we explored the beach. And as we walked back she told me she wanted a photo that was like the original photo I took of us holding hands. She said she wanted it to be our new tradition. We would take one like it wherever we went. And so we got this shot. Her beautiful hand, held in mine. The first of many more shots that will be from all around the world.
I always love being able to see Brown Pelicans. They are amazing birds. Everything from their specialized bill, to their hunting ability to their flight. I love watching them. I love seeing them fly up high, then plunge, fearlessly, straight down into the water to catch a fish. I love watching a flock glide, low over the water, weaving their way through the incoming waves. They’re incredible.
A flock of them flying high over Myrtle Beach, SC.
This is Apache Pier, or at least the underside of it. It’s the longest pier on the East Coast and really is very pretty. The waves crashing through the tunnel of beams sounds amazing, while fishermen cast off from above. It’s a classic pier.
