Look!! Up there ...



Posted by Ballunatic. I wasn't even looking for them; they just appeared out of nowhere and sailed over Champions Gate last Sunday morning. LOL

I saw four balloons, and I also saw the crew taking a break over by the Clock Tower. Thinking the balloons were going to land there, I went over with my camera in hand and was fortunate enough to talk to one of the crew. He told me the blue and white striped balloons were the biggest balloons in the world; fully inflated they stand six stories tall and the basket can hold up to twenty people. Unfortunately, while we were talking, he got a call to leave for the landing zone, which was not the field behind the Clock Tower.
