Up, Up and Away, in my beautiful balloon .....

I finally went on my long-anticipated air-balloon flight which was given to me by my wife as a special birthday present. There were 16 of us plus the pilot in the basket, and the photo above shows us almost ready for lift-off.
 Up in the air, flying upward to around 1100 or 1200 feet above sea level, with nothing but the occasional sound of the burner. What a wonderful sensation, just floating along at about 9 miles per hour, with hardly any feeling of movement. The flight was all that I had always anticipated, and more!
Once we were back on terra firma, which was about two hours after take-off, we were given a certificate to commemorate our flight.
