We had some impromptu visitors pass through on Saturday. We are on the route for a balloon company and several Saturday evenings we have seen these magnificent balloons drifting gently by over our fields. This Saturday was even better than usual because they came right over the house and we even had a conversation with the balloon pilot. I was so enthralled I forgot to ask where they were based and even though I have the Registration number I do not know how to track it down.
They were quite low at one point and we wondered if they would gain enough height to get up the hill. They did rise quite quickly and as we can see they flew right over the house with plenty of clearance.
What a way to see our beautiful countryside. As soon as I have infomation about balloon companies which operate in our area I will write another blog.
