Doug Heatherington, a vacationer from the Oklahoma City suburb of Yukon, Okla., decided to make a sand angel on the beach just south of the Sea Pines Beach Club in tribute to the 24 victims of the tornado that struck Moore, Okla. earlier in the week. "I just whipped it up because I felt it was something I needed to do," said Heatherington, who vacations on the island for two weeks each year to build sand sculptures. "I just felt upset about the kids." Here, he is photographed on Thursday working on his latest sculpture, an abstract with spheres. He said the Moore tribute sculpture at right was the first angel sand sculpture he had ever created.
