Not long after our arrival another 2 boats turned up with a third and final boat later this afternoon. It was while dinner was being prepared late afternoon that Ian suddenly noticed something peeking out behind the trees. There, rising up in front of us, was a hot air balloon.Caused quite a stir I can tell you with people coming out of the woodwork in all directions to have a look. One couple told us this was a regular occurrence especially at weekends. It's a first for us here though. I had hoped to see it rising above the trees but the wind took it in the opposite direction and we soon lost sight of it. Still it was a good talking point and a good way to meet everyone from the other boats. Soon dinner was forgotten as we chatted away so it's good job that chicken and mushroom Carbonara was on the menu and is a quick and easy meal to cook 'cause I want to be settled with a glass of wine by 9pm ready for the start of Strictly.
