really going to need to have a vacation when I get home…

today we were up and out of the house by 5 am… decided we would see if we could get a hot air balloon flight… if it didn’t work this morning then that was a sign that we weren’t meant to go…

by 6:30 we had a flight booked and were heading to the Gatineau Airport for lift off…

although the expectation was that we would go straight up and come right back down as the air was very still, we were up for an hour and a half and went to 3000 feet…


spectacular… this time when we got back to the Park, we all had Apple Cider together and got pictures with Annie, one of the pilots of La Magie de L’Air… what a great team they are… maybe next time we will take in the International Balloon Festival of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu;-)… 

then we headed to the Farmers Market at Landsdowne… lots of people there, most of whom seemed to be lined up for the bread

we stopped at the Lindt store and Whole Foods for dinner supplies and headed home for a well deserved nap…

later we took a long list to IKEA and as we were leaving saw the balloons on their evening flight… 

once home, we even saw a few as they floated through the air close by…


ended the day with a stunning light show…
