Ballooning! Wow, just wow!
We were thrilled to be invited to go ballooning with a hiking friend of Paul’s who has her own balloon and pilot’s license.
It’s hard to find the right words to describe the quiet and the majesty of flying above the earth in this manner. It was a super morning for ballooning (and fun to watch two commercial companies launch their large balloons from the same field we used). There are many parallels to sailing (yes, wind matters!)
I had to pinch myself a couple of times to overcome the surreal feeling and freedom of soaring above fields of apple blossoms and glowing canola, while being able to see the sea and mountains (such a welcome antidote for being locked down for so long!)
Afterwards we shared a champagne picnic brunch with Jackie and her husband who was our “chaser”.
We are so very thankful for this unique opportunity, especially since it’s something that we have both been wanting to do for a long time.
Wow, what a perfect Easter Monday morning!Read more
