I love hot air balloons. I would love to go up in one and watch the world below me. Instead, I settle for watching them float, magically, in the sky.

This was taken at the Great Geauga County Fair. Oh how I love you, fair. Not just for your yummy, fattening foods, or your pretty horses, or your hot air balloons, but for all the memories you have given me.

For more Sky Watch Friday head on over here.

How much fun and adventure it would be to go up in a hot air balloon.

If you get the time stop by and I always have a pot of coffee on.

I feel like when I see the lightness of balloons in the air!

I couldn't do SWF last week but posted some rainbow pictures as well as the boat racing in Salavan. My post is over here This kind of boat racing is quite green!

Hot air balloons always have an air of adventure. I want to go too! Nice memory narrative too - Fairs keep people in a state of perpetual childhood, I think.
