Live on the Early Show with Hootie & the Blowfish

The Early Show (CBS) aired live from Charleston this morning so we headed down to the battery bright and early to watch Harry, Dave, and musical guest Hootie and the Blowfish. I went with my photographer friend Lea, my florist friend Thuy, and Teresa - my aunt who is visiting from Tallahassee. Sorry...she doesn't have a website. ha!

I'm so glad I have fun friends who are not too cool to do such silly things!

We arrived really early (about 6:00 a.m.), and they guys from Hootie and the Blowfish were warming up.


The sunrise over the harbor was beautiful.


Harry Smith, anchor of The Early Show was happy to see us . . .



. . . and ran over for a quick group picture! lol



Then Dave Price saw us and waved hello.



He also asked for a group photo! hahaha I love the way he is looking over at his shoulder at Lea to see who was back there.



I think everyone in Charleston skipped work this morning watch. One lady even had a "Hey Boss - we'll be late!" sign.



At 7:00 the show began...



There were even boaters out in the harbour watching.


This picture is so funny. Lea yelled hello to Darius Rucker and he was giving the peace sign. But the look on his face at this moment is so funny. Now I'm wondering if it wasn't really a peace sign - but a secret symbol for the police to restrain us! ha

Hootie and the Blowfish were awesome!



Fun times! Thanks for going Teresa, Lea, and Thuy!
