Hi , Been to bristol ballon several times , well worth a visit , great to see so many balloons up in the air a one time , looks like you are having good weather hope it last's
Is that the World Cup arriving from Germany above your head??
Glad its better weather than expected, we will have to plan another trip that way, because we enjoyed it last time we went. Bob and Janie.
afternoon both nice chatting with you this morning.thanks for the linK.
Think we will have to put this one back on our to do list it's a few years since we last went, the photos bring it alive.
Oh sound like a funsters meet here next year then xxx
My dog HATES the sound of those balloons 'swishing' as they fire up the gas. She goes BESWICK!!
Wow John,you have joined fun brill . Enjoy Fun
Update on weather here just started tipping down good news the evening flight has just begun
Evening flight begins
Morning from Bristol another beautiful day and no wind so looks like balloons will be going if again. Have fun out there .
Wow, that takes me back a bit I used to live in Bristol and one morning in 1989 I had a flight in a balloon out of Ashton Court..................
This lead to spending the next 10 years of my life as a professional hot air balloon pilot
They are a wonderful sight to see............. enjoy
That's interesting, never met one before. It's one of those trades about which very little is known.
There are plenty of amateur 'hot air balloon pilots' on here, me being the foremost.......
Have a good day, I bet if I told you that's the only time Janie got up early without complaint, you would never believe me.
They would not be flying here in Cromer, the only thing flying today are peoples tents and wind breaks.
But the Sun's out and a good day for a walk. Bob.
Funny you should say that............ often when halfway through a passenger flight one of my passengers would say to me "so what do you do for a living?" my answer...."I fly balloons".......... they would say "no, not your hobby, what do you do for a job?".......my answer "This!"
I was never taken seriously !! It really is one of those jobs you have to explain every time!
Well the weather has finally beat us we are packing up and going home. We had constant heavy rain most of the night. We hope it stays dry long enough to put awning away great 5 days we have had.
Glad you had a great time, I said we should move from Cromer last night when Janie said today was going be thunder storms
But we sat here in what seemed l!ke a river bed this morning, and doesnot look like we will be going anywhere.
Still the fete started at 2 and if the rain stops we might have paddle round there. Bob
