The word challenge this week from Cee is fire or summer. How convenient that Julie and I got out at 6:00 a.m. last Friday to watch the launch of the hot air balloons. And the air in those hot air balloons gets hot because of fire.
What fun we had. The morning was cool and clear, with just a hint of a breeze. There weren’t many people so we could parked in the same lot as the vans and balloon trailers were parked. Someone sent up a couple of helium balloons to check the direction of the wind and then the pilots got in a huddle – in the middle of the parking lot.
They were checking their maps, smart phones, and tablets; wondering if they should move the launch site to a different part of the park. Finally the decision was made to launch. Enjoy.
