Hot Air Balloon Flight

to fly by sailing
freedom of the mind up high
it will open eyes
to feelings of a sound heart
expressed with integrity

Tanka inspired by  Recollections At Fall

Photos depict all from setting up to after the landing. Could not photograph the actual landing for safety reasons, that was a question of heads down and hold on.

 There was actually 16  passengers, with the pilot 17. I am second from the right, top row. Personally I was disappointed with the last image, as several were took, this being the only one where I wasn’t facing the camera. It was my 60th birthday present from all my family that was nearly 13 years ago. Would I do again, oh YES!
