the Land of Balloons and Sunsets
Camera: K3, Optio P70. Photo Location: Palm Springs, CA ISO: 50 
Posted By: Bob Harris, 01-28-2015, 09:19 PM

Traveling as we do when it starts to get cold we go to warmer ground and the lower deserts where many fulltime RVers go to. Sitting outside our motorhome in tee shirt and shorts, I noticed a couple of hot air balloons floating by and of course and to take a few shots of tourists enjoying the weather and sights of the area. The day ended with Merlot in hand watching another beautiful sunset over the San Jacinto mountains. Life is good, just follow the sun is what we've found.

You know how to live, old buddy - for some reason, these great shots remind me of lazy evenings at the dock sitting in Cut Time's cockpit.

We'll keep traveling for awhile Heinrich, then we will really enjoy ourselves and take cruises like you do.

thanks Tom, years back down here, we had a balloon land right in front of our motorhome. The propane burner failed and the pilot had to ditch it. It landed nice and easy and the people got off with Champaign in hand as if nothing had happened.

I'll drink to that Bob. Lovely sunsets to go with the merlot and the balloons are an added bonus.
