It was a long time before we found the place where the wind was just right and a longer time to get the balloon inflated to the right direction of the wind.

But waking up at 5 am to see the Valley wake up to a glorious weekend was a fun thing to do to celebrate Easter a day early.






A reflection of our balloon on the lake beneath us.

Our shadow on the vineyards below.

See the fenced in “garden” of pot !

And finally, after 4 hours, a well deserved champagne and breakfast of poached eggs and ham and some French sourdough toast.
