Up, Up, and Away



*As you may already know, I'm in France and I am at the b ottom of my photo barrel so I'm happy to have a little relief! Last month my friend Jean Reed subbed for me while I was in France. Today her friend Robert is going to share a few photo with us. Robert lives in LA
( Lower Alabama!) in Baldwin County.

For the past 5 years the town of Foley, Alabama has hosted the Gulf Coast Hot Air Balloon Festival. It's a three day event that features over 50 colorful hot air balloons. As in other small towns, one event calls for another and there are many simultaneous events for fun and fundraising going on . It takes place on Father's Day so come on down and enjoy the show!

VA,
How did your blog become a commercial outlet for web designers????? I'm sure that Robert will be quite pleased to see his photo on your website. Hotair ballons are so colorful, bright, and cheerful! I think he got the perfect shot! Jean

Jean,
WE get that riffraff from time to time. Poof and they're gone! Hope Robert has enjoyed his "15 minutes of fame!"

Great photos - beautiful balloons! Seems most of ours here in southern California have casino names on them - they are colorful but nothing like these. Good job Robert - thanks for sharing!
