The Balloon Has Landed!

This evening I was out weeding the front garden when I was startled by a rather loud WHOOSHING sound.  Having spent several years living near the Adirondack Balloon Festival in upstate NY I knew immediately what it was.  I looked up, and sure enough:

It proceeded to land in the road in front of our property.  Maddie and I stayed out at the end of the driveway and watched as they methodically landed, deflated it, and packed it up.

It was a lovely end to a relaxing day.  Have a happy holiday weekend!
