With all the upheavals around the globe and the atmosphere of uncertainty, here's some snaps to cheer us up!!:smile:
With our local balloon fiesta happening and the weather conditions good for flying we have the pleasure of viewing on of the most spectacular shaped balloons around. Sunny Boy really brings a smile to most faces, especially kids - both big and small.
At 140' tall Sunny Boy is impressive:

Yesterday was a marginal but Sunny Boy was inflated



and managed to fly across the aerodrome



while pilot Jason Livingstone who flies large balloons across the Serengeti and in Australia (he is a kiwi) flew across no hands in his Rockhopper balloon that has no basket - only a seat



today Sunny Boy flew across the town



low across the road



and landed at the front of the runway!!!

Thanks for the kind words folks, it is just so much fun to be around these events and to be involved with ballooning. I can see some great opportunities ahead. :biggrin::biggrin:
