After our false start on Monday when the weather stopped us going up, we got uo Thursday at 4.30am and off we went

It was very calm

Great photos Sandra.
I love seeing the balloons coming over our villa and I keep saying that I will take a ride in one someday in Florida.

We were hoping to go over our villa as last Friday they came over and were so low we got great video of them but we went further up the 27 and landed just behind Showcase of Citrus.

It just depends on the wind direction on the day.

You must do it, it's so lovely just floating along in the dawn sky

Great photos Sandra! I will always remember our first morning when we were sat around the pool at our villa when a balloon went over.

It's funny isn't it Claire, it's just a balloon but you get so excited seeing them :wiggle:

We had 4 go over our villa on Friday and they were so low as they were coming down to land - I got great video of them.

Maybe in December as I haven't made an itinerary for that trip yet.
This trip leaving Tuesday, definately not. It's an extra trip being done as cheaply as possible that we have squeezed in as we have annual passes for the parks. So, no extras, no fancy meals, just parks days.

Still, we're going to WDW in a couple of days :wiggle:

Wow, you are brave, I don't think I could do it! It looks breath taking though! How old is your son Sandra? Is he close in age to Ty who's 13?
