The Great Hot Air Balloon Chase, Two

As I sped towards the Clock Tower, I could see there was no activity there, so I drove to the 7-11 and got a cup of coffee. When I came out of the 7-11 I spotted two balloons coming in from the east.

At first they appeared to be almost touching, but as you can see, one was well ahead of the other. I decided to go to the Clock Tower to try to get some clear shots as they passed by.

This one was getting pretty close as I got out of my truck and headed to the Clock Tower.

The Tower was looking so nice, early in the morning. I found a good spot and waited for the balloons to float by.

Tune in tomorrow to see Part Three!

I wouldn't mind a nice spot by the tower to watch too!
Be back tomorrow - you know with no blue and all this suspense I'm probably going to need that counseling - say eight o'clock by the lake in one of those rocking chairs - I'll bring the coffee - LOL!!

Carletta: I'm ready.

MB: No disaster stories here.

Evlahos: Thanks! I'm thankful they showed up, I was running out of material. LOL

Coca: Just think, in a couple of day tomorrow will be yesterday.

Aren't you glad you were patient even if it took days?
