Full of Hot Air

As I climbed into the gondola of Pinwheel yesterday morning it occurred to me that some might think the balloon wouldn't have to use much gas considering all the hot air I bought on board. Captain Ray Chase took Peanut and I up for a little tethered ride in his balloon at the Preakness Hot Air Balloon Festival at Turf Valley shortly after daybreak.
This is the first time we've attended HoCo’s premiere Preakness event. Peanut and I rose early and, after stopping for a coffee and a hot chocolate, we arrived at the festival as the sun was rising over the Hialeah course.
It could not have been a more perfect day.
This is a very cool event. We will be back next year.
