Hot air ballooning in Woodinville, Washington

Our town is best known for two things – hot air balloons and wineries.  Can you see why I like living here?

Late this afternoon, Shasta came running into the house barking, obviously shaken by something happening outside.  (Quinn, on the other hand, was unfazed.  We’re thinking therapy dog!) 

Once I recognized the intermittent sound of the loud burners, I knew that a hot air balloon was floating nearby.  I grabbed my iPhone, ran onto the deck and started filming.  Then I got in the car and chased the balloon until I came to the end of a residential road, hopped out of the car and caught its final descent.

Have a I said it before?  I love living in the Pacific Northwest – especially in the summer!

where I grew up there were also every night a dozen of hot air balloons in the air....where I live now (100km further) we are too close by the national airport so there's none here :(. I miss them

It was nice meeting you finally. I was up at my sisters house and saw it two. I saw about two or three of them from the car. It was so neat to watch them fly over us. :)
