Ballooning on St Patrick's day 2012

Inflating the balloonTwo balloons went upLot of hot airReady to goUp, Up and AwayCaptain RichardAre we having fun yet?

Friends of mine Richard and Heather asked if I wan’t to go ballooning with them.  Way to good and offer to refuse.  Richard has been flying for just over 20 years now, so on St Patrick’s day with the weather being a balmy zero degrees off we went just before a cold front moved in.  Left from a ball diamond in the town of Langdon just east of Calgary.  Richard was even generous enough to let me fly for a short while.
