Calendar Series Introduction - August Ballooning

Hot air ballooning is really popular in our evidenced by this snap where I managed to catch eight balloons (montgolfières) at once around sunset.  This day the light winds were perfect for a slow passage over the bridge in front of the château.  Alas, it is not a cheap ride...but surely unforgettable.


  1. Unforgettable...yes. I did it once, although without any travelling (just up and down). This flame overhead is not the most secure thing! I will never do that again.
    Anyway, halfway between Cherbourg and Caen, there is a yearly huge hot air ballooning meeting very popular. If you are fond of those, I will check for you...

  2. I guess they're also pretty loud. I can hear them coming inside the house. Fortunately they don't have the burner on all the time. My only balloon ride was at the Parc Andre Citoën !

  3. ...Citroën...
