Thursday Thirteen - Images From My Hot Air Balloon Ride

I''ve had these on my camera for a while and it's high time I share.  They're by no means professional grade photographs of the dual balloon flights, but I  hope you enjoy...


  1. OMG! I'm SO jealous! I've always wanted to go on a balloon ride! Great pictures, Darla! Happy Thursday!

  2. Very kewl. I'd love to do that. Thanks for sharing. Happy T13!

  3. I would love to do this, too! Wow! I think Autumn has to be the best time to go on a balloon ride, with all the colors changing, etc.


    Happy TT!

  4. Fun! Great pics!

  5. You had a beautiful day for it! The last few pictures are especially interesting to me because I've never seen the equipment that way.

  6. Awesomesauce! I'd love to do a hot air balloon ride. Great Pics.

  7. OH wOW!!!!!!!! That is SO AWESOME!!! Great pictures and it looks like it was a fun ride!

  8. I love hot air ballooning. Cool pics. Did you have champagne after landing?

  9. These are lovely photos. I had a chance to ride a hot air balloon once at the local fair they had free rides. They'd take you up about fifty feet then bring you right down again. Sort of a hot air balloon elevator. I went with my sister (we were both in our twenties) and she thought it would be boring so we didn't do it.

    Twice now I have seen a hot air balloon even go right over my home. It so lovely to see the balloons fill the sky.


  10. Gorgeous! I want to do this some time in the next year or two. I have an issue with heights, but I'm willing to deal for the chance to see these viewpoints first hand. :)

    Happy T13,

    13 Wishes

  11. Thanks for the kind comments. We did enjoy sparkling wine after the fact, with a story on how early French balloon enthusiasts would garner favor with the unsuspecting landowners whose property they landed upon. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thursday!
