Cornwall Lift-Off!


As my title states, guess where I am right now? Yup, in Cornwall with Chrisanne. Yesterday was the start of Cornwall Lift-Off the annual hot air balloon festival. Lift-Off is a great deal, its $20 for the whole weekend's concerts. I drove down from Ottawa yesterday after work.

When we got there a Santana tribute band was playing. Later that night was Glass Tiger... ahhh memories of grade 5! Unfortunately I killed my camera battery taking pictures of the balloons so I haven nothing from that show to share with you!


Soon I saw that the hot-air balloons were taking off. So left Chrisanne and Lindsay behind and disappeared for awhile with my camera. Here are a few of my shots of the balloons

Awesome photos Dani! Since I'm working in Cornwall all weekend, I'm headed to Lift Off after work with my son. He had no idea this was taking place practically in his backyard! Do the balloons take flight at any specific time?

We were in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for their balloonfest a couple of years ago. Except for having to get up at o'dark o'clock and travel by bus to the liftoff site, I loved every minute of it. The unrolling and filling is definitely my favorite times. By the time they fly away, they got small very quickly. Great pictures!

Hi Dani, It seems so funny to hear you talk of Cornwall and not mean the one in England ;-) Your pictures are really great and sounds like a fab time is being had :-)

Ahhh, Glass Tiger! How I loved them ... a few years back now. Went to a concert way back too! Hmm, I'm feeling a little old now!
