Carolina Balloonfest

So things have been kind of crazy recently in my technological world!  My 2 year old Mac crashed during the night a few days ago and it was a complete hard drive failure!  Fortunately most of my stuff was backed up until about a month prior…. but scary stuff, and lesson learned! ..Always back up everything.
Anyway, throughout the havoc I made it out to Statesville NC to see the hot air balloons fly at the annual Carolina Ballonfest.

Here is the photo from the big takeoff!

Also tickets could be purchased for balloon rides which I didn’t get to do but looked fun.
