Happy Fourth of July

We had a great 4th.
We went down to Sandbridge Beach early in the evening to get a good parking spot.
We had a big picnic and played in the water and sand waiting for the fireworks.
I didn't know what to expect since I hadn't been to Sandbridge for the 4th before.
It was probably one of the best fireworks experiences I have had.
There was not one group pre-organized to set off fireworks. Instead, everyone brought their illegal ones and set them off all up and down the beach.
It was a blast. Literally.
At times I couldn't see all of them because they were going off on both sides of me, or directly over my head.
People had plenty of legal ones too and many kids were running around with sparklers.
I stood for a while with my back to the ocean, letting the waves wash over my feet and ankles, feeling the fabulous breeze and watching explosions of colored light all around me.
It was fabulous.
Sorry I didn't get any pictures. I'm not sure I could do it justice with a thousand words either.
How about this: Come stay with me next Fourth of July and we'll go see them together!
