Ballooning over Del Mar

I’ve had a lovely time here in San Diego the past week or so getting to know my new half sister Susanne—if you missed the story, click here, it’s a doozy! Yesterday we  strolled the beach in Carlsbad and played a bit of Frisbee. Today, it was a hot air balloon ride over Del Mar. I’ve actually been on a balloon ride in this area once before, but last time we were treated to an ocean fly-over. Apparently, they no longer do this…liability reasons I suppose [thank the attorneys].

Have you ever been in a hot air balloon? If so, please share your experience. This was maybe my 5th or 6th time….and I don’t think I’ll ever tire of it. Such an extraordinary experience!
