I met up with adorable Anna and Ian against this year at Folly Beach.
It’s funny. I always notice how much children have grown when I photograph them multiple times, but the difference between almost two year old twins and almost three year old twins is amazing. They were talking! And walking around like they owned the place! Crazy.
As we were making our way to the Morris Island Lighthouse overlook, we noticed smoke coming from the forested area between the lane and the beach.
Really, quite a lot of smoke. And popping noises.
Fascinating and a smidge frightening, but they were dressed and we were halfway there, so no turning back.
After we played on the beach for about 45 minutes, all the while hearing sirens and seeing the smoke steadily crawl the sky like a charcoal predator, we walked back and encountered the fire truck and and other bystanders.
Apparently someone drove onto the beach, started doing doughnuts in the sand, and flipped up onto the dunes, catching his engine on fire. This is why we can’t have nice things.
Thankfully, no one was hurt. But it’s a photo shoot none of us will soon forget.
