Strolling along a beach with her friend, a woman does a good deed and picks up some trash strewn on the sand. In the process, she spies an attractive antique-looking bottle that she decides to keep. When she takes the receptacle home, though, she has no idea that this random find will ultimately see her listed in the Guinness Book of Records.

Married couple Tonya and Kym Illman are based in the Western Australian town of Lancelin as well as the nearby city of Perth. Both work at an audio-marketing company called Messages on Hold, which Kym founded. The parents of two are also keen photographers and have traveled all over the world with their cameras.

And on January 21, 2018, Kym, Tonya, their son and his girlfriend and family friends Grace and Joe Ricciardo were out for a drive. However, when they were crossing a beach near Wedge Island, close to Lancelin, their car got stuck in the sands. As a result, Tonya and Grace seized the opportunity to take a stroll.
