Saturday Snapshot: September 3


Saturday Snapshot is a meme hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. All you have to do is "post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken and then leave a direct link to your post in the Mr. Linky on [her] blog. Photos can be old or new, and be of anything as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give is up to you." All she asks is that you don't just post random photos that you find online. (Click pictures for close-ups.)



Just took these this morning. My co-worker and her sisters flew over my house in this lovely hot air balloon. She just knocked off one of her bucket list items.

Terrific photos. It looks like a perfect day for a hot air balloon ride. Not here though. Too humid, plus, because it's the start of college football season, airplanes are flying around with banners behind them.
Here's My Saturday Snapshot

She's braver than I am!

Hot air balloons always look so lovely hanging in the sky like that, but, really, I don't think I could ever go up in one.

Alyce said...

That is so cool that she did it and that she flew over your house! They have hot air balloons at our airport for a festival at the end of September every year and we always miss seeing them somehow.

Lovely.

Seeing hot air balloons is magical, tho, I would not want to ride in one having a fear of heights

have a good weekend

Yikes!! Landing in a tree!! Great pix--such a clear sky! My mother liked to ride in hot air balloons too -- with the champagne afterwards!

Great shots. In 2000 we went to Albuquerque, NM for the Balloon Fiesta - a fabulous event.

I'm with Trish. Although they look beautiful floating through the sky, I don't know if I could actually go up in one.

Fun! Although those baskets look so flimsy!

Vicki said...

Neat! I've always wanted to ride in one of those!

Janet Ruth said...

Gorgeous photos, love the colors! What an awesome idea ... makes me wonder if I could convince my 3 sisters to go up in a hot air balloon with me someday.

Leslie said...

That looks like fun. One of these days I'd like to do it.

Rob said...

It look like fun from the ground. Even though I'm tall, heights scare me. LOL

I'm not a fan of flying...not even balloons, but they do look gorgeous! Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.

I love seeing balloons in the sky. Don't know if I am brave enough to go up in one though. Did you friend enjoy it?

Bev Hankins said...

@Jill: I think so. I'll get the full scoop from her at work on Tuesday.

Book Dragon said...

nice!

Lisa@ButteryBooks said...

How fun! I don't know if I could do that...I am a little squeamish about heights.

jlshall said...

Wow, just like the Wizard of Oz!

I love hot air balloons. Looking at them, anyway. You'd never get me up in one, but I do like to see other people enjoying them.
