Continuing in “reflection” mode…. I had always wanted to go up in a hot air balloon and a few years ago was able to cross that off my “bucket list“. Actually, I really want to, someday, parachute off a hot air balloon, but am not sure THAT will ever happen! After several failed attempts (each involving a 3:30 a.m. wake-up) I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of rising into the sky, floating over vineyards and fields and touching down in a lovely little river. Even though my only pair of shoes were soaked, it was worth it! We soared and landed several times in the trip over the Napa Valley and Pleasant Valley in northern California.
