Wow, I thought for sure we would see these balloons skyward Saturday morning but I guess it wasn’t meant to be. I believe they said the wind. Meaning I guess some was needed because it felt still to me. But what I know about ballooning could be summed up in one word, NOTHING. I should have gotten my behind out there the other days but work and responsibilities stepped in. But Saturday was a nice tribute to Wounded Warriors early and families were out enjoying the warm spring morning.

I do know balloons make a fairly good photo op and judging by the number of photographers out there it wasn’t getting by many in the area. I took a good number of shots but would like to edit that mess. In the mean time here is a quick video below. Wish they would have flown, it seemed like a beautiful morning. Because there is a limit to the beauty of the balloon on the ground.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
