The fireworks were absolutely magnificent last night in beautiful Sea Pines Plantation on dreamy Hilton Head Island here in South Carolina's beguiling low country.
The sky was clear with a full moon and whole families came to Harbour Town in droves for
this great Fourth of July classic.
The show lasted at least half-an-hour by our count and ended, as expected with a spectacular finale.
Children were everywhere, all excited and delighted as a perfect Independence Day came to a close. The little girl in front of me reported tha there would be 89 fireworks in all and she said that with such authority that I wasn't about to argue with her.
Did I count them? Naahh . . . I was having too much fun!
After the fireworks we walked back to Sea Pines Center (about a mile) through the pines and the darkness under a glorious full moon with the bullfrogs croaking and the crickets cricketting.
We ended the evening at Coligny Plaza where we enjoyed hot fudge sundaes! A perfect Fourth!
