Up, up and away

This is what I saw this morning right outside my front door.

And I don't live in New Mexico.

I love seeing hot air balloons.

Just don't want to take a ride in one.

Do you? Or have you? Do tell.

Outdoor Wednesday @ A Southern Daydreamer


  1. I have....when I was a child. My father took me to Disney World and somewhere around Orlando we went for a hot air balloon ride in a balloon that look like Mickey. It was the thrill of the whole trip!!!!! I don't remember much, other than the balloon looking like Mickey...ears and all :)

  2. How fun is that to see right out your front door! I too think it would be so much fun to take a ride in one...someday :)

  3. They look so lovely up in the sky that I'd rather stay on the ground looking up!

  4. That is an absolutely gorgeous shot of the hot air balloon.
    We used to have a least 6 or 7 of them floating around above our back yard when we first moved here to San Diego about 20 years they are mostly only in Del Mar.
    Took a peek at your Temecula post and really enjoyed it!!! I haven't been poking around there in years....maybe it's time to go back and take a look.

  5. I think they are truly beautiful, but I have a fear heights. Guess I never will get to fly in one. I am sure it would be fun and think what a view you could see. This one is very pretty.

  6. Wonder where it originated from. I lived in Albuquerque but when we lived there they did not have the balloon festival yet. Nice picture.

  7. Great shot! I have always wanted to go up in a hot air balloon and it is definitely on my must do list.
