balloons & arrows...

It's been an exciting weekend here in Bristol.
All manner of flying machines have been above our heads.
The Bristol Balloon Fiesta was held in the nearby Ashton Court.
Sadly poor weather only showed us one mass ascent, we saw hundreds of balloons float over our house.
Sunday we headed to the allotment for a bbq and to watch the red arrows.
We did the very same last year so we knew how amazing it would be!
The excitement was getting to fever pitch as we sat and waited, then all of a sudden a roar in the skies and they were there.
Wow... the noise, the speed, they are breathtaking.
And with a final flourish they were gone... leaving us to water the plot, finish our chicken kebabs and pick some harvest.
Good times.
