Hot Air Balloon

For Mellow Yellow Monday ...

On this dark, cold wet winter day, it is fun to think about a wonderful bright sunny summer sky and a hot air balloon ride.

This photo was taken at the Atlantic Balloon Fiesta in Sussex, NB in 2008.

Thanks everyone. I have never been up in a balloon but it is on my to-do list. I would definitely be nervous but I think the view would be amazing. The balloon fiesta where I took this picture offers balloon rides every year so the possibility is definitely there. Riel

Sorry to be late to visit. I posted on Monday but had no time to visit until today. I've always wanted to ride in one of these balloons too. Thanks for sharing.
Hugs and blessings,
