On Saturday afternoon, and then later in the evening, several hot air balloons drifted through our small city. As we drove home from the grocery store one floated above the car. Several hours later we were astonished to see one hovering over the tree in our backyard. As its destination was our neighbor's yard, it nearly touched our house before landing.
Of course my husband's camera was out and he took a lot of stellar photos. I've never been so close to a hot air balloon- it was a real treat.
