Balloons over Bristol

This has absolutely nothing to do with my usual interest in Christian apologetics, but I thought nevertheless it was worth telling the world. It’s the annual Balloon Fiesta in Bristol, Britain, right now, and the sight’s been truly beautiful today. The sky was filled with ’em since before Eight O’clock in the morning. It’s been a gloriously sunny day today as well, so seeing them drift across the sky with the sun glinting on them – all shapes and colours – has been really wonderful.

Of course, it usually means that the roads up to Ashton Court from south Bristol, where the Balloon Fiesta is usually held, is usually clogged up with traffic so that there are massive traffic jams around Ashton Gate and Bedminster with people travelling up to see them, but it’s a splendid sight nonetheless. If you can survive the stress of negotiating the traffic, that is.

    That’s okay, Rich.:)

    As for the hot air jokes about balloons, well, yes, they’re lifted by hot air, but fuelling them is a burning spirit that raises you to the heavens, and gives you an awesome perspective.
