Windy, Foggy and calm all in the one morning.

After the torrential rain on ANZAC Day, the valley put on a stunner for us this morning.  We had every possible weather in the one hour balloon flight over the Hunter Valley vineyards.  Take off was windy with 7 or 8 knots as we left the paddock.  Dropping in behind some trees we found a nice light breeze taking us over the vines.  Soon we had to climb to cross the biggest set of power lines you will find in the valley before descending over the Hunter Valley Gardens into a light fog and calm winds again.  Ballooning above the scattered fog patches for the remainder of the flight was like a magic carpet ride before the hour was up and we landed at the Sebel, Kirkton Park at the south end of the valley.

Thank you to our great passengers this morning for making a beautiful morning into a great fun balloon flight..even if a little rude at times…..you know who you are!!
