Ballooning for the Quilter

Vince took me on an early balloon ride this morning while we are taking a brief rest in Pennsylvania.  It has always been a dream of mine to soar quietly above the earth and realize the beauty of God's creation.  What a morning it was and words cannot explain the wonder of the trip.  It was so awesome.  We had a clear, cool morning with hardly any wind.  We went over a mile high and could see the buildings of Philadelphia over sixty miles away.  At one point we could see the Delaware River and the edge of Chesapeake Bay.  Cool air means clear views.  What an experience!


  1. Oh it is just awesome going for a balloon ride.
    I did it two years ago.

  2. What a fabulous memory to make together! This is on my bucket list too.
