You'll never guess what I was doing this morning...


My DH had a birthday today and always wanted to go on a balloon flight.  So why wait?  Of course I had to go too.............



















 








Yes, that's us in the balloon with 4 others and the Pilot at 5:00am


 
Then the sun came up.......


 
 
 
 



 
Our Pilot Justin


Everything that goes up must come down...

This was the scene at 4:30am.  That is the moon above.
 

It was very very cold.  Firing up the air was spectacular and warm

The balloon rose really quickly.  And we had to climb into that basket.  Elegant it was not!

Then we had to compete for air space.  That is an ultralight flyer who circled us for a while and then flew over to the opposition - there was another balloon up this morning, but a bit too far away.  And we had the moon and the sun in the sky!
 
 
 
 
Then we finished with a champagne breakfast on the lovely grounds of Peter Lehman Winery.
And drove back home to go back to bed  :-)
