My family & I spotted strange objects in the sky in Myrtle Beach, SC, then found one in a photo we took there

My family from Bell County, Kentucky was vacationing in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We were located on Crescent Beach.

We were all out on the beach at approx. 1:00 p.m. Facing away from the ocean were myself, my husband, and my father, chatting with my mother who was tanning on her beach towel. I happened to look up into the sky above us and noticed a round, grey object moving at a steady, fairly rapid rate of speed.

This object was absolutely not an airplane of any kind and appeared to be very far away, far enough away in fact that when it reached clouds it appeared to move either behind or through them, appearing on the other side.

I got the attention of my father and husband in time to point and ask, "What is that?!" The three of us watched as this object moved across the sky (right to left) and disappeared behind a cloud, not exiting on the other side as it had before, just disappearing into "thin air" I suppose.

The same or following day (I can't remember which), I took a photo of the ocean and skyline. I don't recall the time the photo was taken, but there was no sound of any kind of aircraft at all. I noticed nothing in the photo until I loaded it onto my computer from my digital camera and saw a round grey object hovering above the ocean in the right side of the photo.

There is nothing in the sky at all (even clouds) except this strange object. This is not any type of aircraft that myself or any member of my family could identify, therefore I can only imagine it may be a UFO. It is rather creepy.
