We're lucky to live a short 10-minute drive from one of the best places on the planet to watch fireworks. While other folks cling to the shoreline of Cooper River, we brave the goose poop (we brought a tarp) and unfold our folding chairs on one of the docks jutting out onto the water.
Several hundred feet away, fireworks are shot from an outcropping. From our vantage point, it feels like a private show.

Several hundred feet beyond the fireworks, former Bad Company frontman, Paul Rodgers was performing a free concert (Appropriate, since he was also the lead singer of Free). From where we sit, we can't see the show but we can hear it loud and clear.
Rodgers is amazing. It's hard to believe the man is 60! He puts all the other sexagenarian rockers to shame.
We sat out on the water, listening to music and enjoying the breeze and loud lights for about 2 hours. As we were leaving, a woman said to my husband, "There sure is a lot of poop out here." He said, "Most of it's mine." Have I mentioned that he's going to be on Last Comic Standing, July 5 at 9PM?
Here's the set list from Rodgers' 90 minute concert.
