When we reached the beach it was still raining but after about 15 minutes, the rain slowed down enough to get out of the cars. At that point about 7 of use headed down the path toward the beach with no blue sky to be seen. About 5 minutes later we walked out on the beach, the rain stopped, and the clouds started breaking up! Our prayers were answered -- God blew the rain out and gave us a couple hours of shooting time.
Something I never saw growing up in Florida was a starfish on the beach. This morning we saw two live ones and one that had spent too much time in the South Carolina sun.

This one reminded me of John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.

Finally, the sun came out enough to give us some good low side light on the dead trees along the beach and the lighthouse offshore.
