an unexpected hot air balloon

An early morning surprise.     Sitting downstairs I heard a whooshing sound…  trying to place that sound (“what was that?”), discounting water and kettles and open windows…. I suddenly had it – a hot air balloon (it had been many years)…    Racing out back, I looked in all directions to no avail, until I looked straight up… and there it was – 50 feet over the house.     

 

So – after rousing  Anna (and scaring the cat), I raced outside with the camera (alas – forgetting shoes in the February chill… see the picture), and watched the landing unfold.   Very cool.   

 

Nothing like one of these balloons to get a Saturday started ….
