This morning we didscussed heading home and arriving on Saturday afternoon. That sounded like perfect timing for visiting with Ned and our friends. So we enjoyed the balloons this morning and then said our goodbyes. We were sad to leave such wonderful people who have become close friends by now. Plus, I’ve missed saying goodbyes to a few who were not around or left yesterday, so I’ll have to find them via email. It was a terrific Fiesta and we feel so blessed to have gotten to enjoy it all!
We were less than 3 hours out of town when we heard the terrible news on the radio that a balloonist had died when their balloon hit power lines, igniting a spark. The second pilot is in critical condition.
We’ve made it to overnight at Walmart in
We spent time today discussing our favorite places, what we’ve learned about both the places and ourselves, what makes us happy, living in a small environment, conservation of resources, etc. One is never the same after a trip and I hope this journey is helping us learn priorities as well as discover our world.
