BALLOON


One evening recently I went out for a walk in one of my favourite fields. The air was still, but suddenly I realised I could hear the noise of a hot air balloon being inflated. It seemed high in the sky but close enough to distinguish two people in the basket underneath. I could see the number on the side of the fabric (G-BZBJ) and later discovered it was a Lindstrand 77A, and privately owned. I think it came from a nearby farm, but the air was so still that I can't imagine where it landed...
