Folly Fish Camp

Folly Beach, South Carolina.
I was in the sand early in the morning.  Tripod set up and stabilized, sipping a large Cup O' Joe: cream and four Splenda is my thing.  These two chairs were positioned for the father/son fish camp.  Behind them was a cooler for bait, undoubtedly shrimps and squids.  Can I saw "shrimps and squids?"  haha- I just did.  There was a coffee steaming for them both.  Maybe one was hot chocolate.  The dad worked the baiting and casting of these two lines.  He then stood them into the rod holders.  He took three steps back and stood beside his son.  I watched the whole thing happen nearly in slow motion.  It brought a big smile to my face.  They were sharing a beautiful memory.  Moments later I was focused on the sun drenched chairs silhouetted in the bright warm sun.  Happy accident... the bird flew right into my frame with perfect timing.  In hindsight, I wish I had approached these two and gotten an address for them.  I would love to be able to share these photos with them for their life's scrapbook.  I've done that many times before for people. This morning it slipped my mind. Maybe I just needed a little bit more "Joe" to wake me up for that thought.
