You know those friends you have who are cool and gorgeous and brilliant?
Christy and Yunus are those friends for us. They met while in Peace Corps in South Africa and bonded over, among other more glamorous things, unmentionably serious stomach troubles. Kind of in the same way that Rebecca and I met and bonded over similar tummy troubles in Dakar, Senegal. Oh yeah, and we met them in Senegal too! They are both excellent teachers and people and friends, and they now live in upstate New York. They're both doing amazing things, of course, as well as raising two of the most adorable boys in the galaxy. Seriously, just look at these two!
We headed down to Folly Beach for some beach time and documentary-style shooting.
Was the weather less-than-ideal? Yes (misty and gray).
Did the youngest hate the feeling of sand on his feet? Yes (surprise!).
But we did have a lot of fun. And, after all, is there really a bad time to go to the beach with good friends?
