On Cloud Nine!

I would just love to fly in one of these things!

On my evening travels today, between checking my horse and the hens and donkeys at the cottage, for some reason I decided to go the long way round for a change.  At the top of the hill I saw this hot air balloon, a local company I think, floating in the light breeze on a lovely evening.  Silent apart from the occasional roar of the burner.

It landed a few minutes after I took this picture.  Another mile and it would have landed in our field beside the cottage, with the donkeys.

Now that would have been a shot!!!
