Hi folks Just sharing a few pictures of the balloon festival here in Plano TX . For the thousands of young and old it was a fun day the main attractions were the colourful hot air balloons and the skydivers in full flow. With everyone in high spirits enjoying the festive fervour on the ground and in the air🙂 The food stalls made brisk sale all the day.🙂

  5. Fabulous.. Up up and AWAY!… I once went in a Balloon.. but it was tethered in a show-ground.. It was when my children were around 10 and 12.. I took them in the basket.. We lifted off to view the surrounding area for a five minute view point high up but not drifting.. .. And then came down again.. What struck me was the powerful burners and the Noise they made, plus the heat from them..🙂 My Children loved their Hot-Air-Balloon ride..🙂

    You seem to be enjoying the weather & nature, also Golf.

    ” If you surrender to the wind, you can ride it.” said Toni Morrison

    Hold your sail firm, or the wind will drag you like a boat without a rudder.

    Did u get the reference??

      Ha ha Suhas thanks for question. But how long can we hold on to the sail – after all the winds and flow of the river are too powerful😉

      All the Masters say “flow with nature”!
