We have had a couple of weeks of unseasonably cold weather but the sun has come back and temperatures are set to rise a bit over the week-end and into next week. We had a fabulous hot air balloon flight from Bath this morning landing at Rode. The flights times at this time of year are later in the morning and earlier in the evening- we call it very civilised ballooning. Meeting at 7.30 am in the morning and 4-4.30 pm in the evening, flying for about an hour but the whole experience lasting 3-4 hours including chilled Champagne.
Here is what one of our passengers said about this morning’s flight: “Sue and I enjoyed our balloon flight this morning – 40th Anniversary Gift from our Son and Daughter and their spouses. What great views of Bath and the countryside south of Bath. I enjoyed being next to Clive as he piloted us and looking at his mapping etc. Sue, was a little apprehensive beforegoing on the trip but we both were thrilled with the experience – a little surprised how quiet and smooth the flight was. Pleased to say we had a trouble-free path to booking a flight and the information provided and the reception arrangements were fine and we felt welcomed by your friendly bunch of support staff at Victoria Park. We would not hesitate in recommending the experience to friends and relatives.”
