After much anticipation, Today arrived.
The first day of the hot air balloon festival.
My favourite day of the year -
the mass ascension one block from our house.
The stars aligned, and it was nothing short of magical.
Perfect still blue skies, not a cloud to be seen.
The sun rose as the balloons did....
they seemed to linger above us for the longest time,
before gently floating over the town.
It was out of this world.
I am still grinning.
I cannot wait to spend time editing the photos I took,
but of course I had to play with some taken on my phone!
The weather looks set to shine beautifully over the next 3 days,
so we will be soaking up as much of the balloons as we can.
It really was, a brilliant day for a balloon ride.
