Myrtle Beach, SC - According to sources, a Tennessee family drove ten hours to the beach on Friday to ignore the ocean over Labor Day Weekend. Hotel cameras show the family of four arriving around 6:00 p.m. and indicate they stayed in their room for the rest of the evening.
Early Saturday morning, the family reportedly wandered onto the beach without towels or swimwear. They picked a spot facing inland and immediately began unloading a variety of tablets, e-readers and cell phones from a backpack.
"I'm not sure they even noticed the ocean," said one nearby sunbather. "I believe the kids were watching TikTok videos, the mom was reading, and the dad was texting the whole time they were out there."
The family stayed for about 45 minutes before heading back to the hotel. A housekeeper saw them in their room around 10:00 a.m. watching Mulan.
A little after noon, the family was observed ordering chicken tenders at a local seafood restaurant. A server says the father asked her if there was a movie theater open in the area. That was the last time they were spotted near the beach.
Sources say the family will be heading home on Sunday, but plan to stop for the night in Gatlinburg to ignore the mountains.
