A Hot Air Balloon Ride
April 2011 I took a trip to visit April, and one of our activities was a hot air balloon ride over an area of farmland and vineyards south of LA.. Yvonne and Dean, cousins, went with us. What a fun way to spend a morning! Going up was a breeze, and landing seemed a little uncontrolled, but we all survived! I would highly recommend it for an adventure! We were in the air around a hour, but it takes just about all morning to meet/greet/sign papers/fill the balloon/float around/land/have champaign/eat breakfast.
After breakfast, April and I drove across the mountains and met up with Yvonne and went on a 'whale watch'. The whales were quite a distance away, and didn't come up out of the water, although we caught many 'blowing', only one tail came up while we were there! It had been an adventerous day, and we concluded the evening with dinner with Beth, Katheryn, and Dwain. What a fun day! THANK YOU ALL WHO CONTRIBUTED!
