A guy walking towards the parking lot saw me standing there with my camera in my hand and stopped to talk. He told us that the guys were all talking about not going up, but that there was one guy who HAS to go, because of his sponsors. He said that he was just going to keep it low and fly across to the other side of town. Dear Hubby and I decided to stick around for a little bit to see if he was really going to go. They set up the balloon out in the field and started pumping some air in.
It didn't take them long to fill it up and get ready for lift off.
You can see in these pics the low clouds and why everyone was concerned about flying today.

One last pic before we left.
Over all I was happy that we decided to take the little trip up to Plymouth this morning, just wish all the balloons would have gone up instead of just the one. At least it wasn't a bust! It was actually a bonus because on the way home we found a produce stand and I was able to get some peppers finally to put into the freezer for this winter. Maybe I should get up before the sun more often??? .... Nahhh!!!
Until next time ...
