Cycle, hot air balloon, and line in the sky.

1) A and I cycle along the canal towpath to Linlithgow and back again this morning – about a 21km round trip – it was the perfect day for a ride, and it was lovely having some one-on-one time with my boy (who is growing up far too quickly!).

2) We watch as the enormous canopy slowly inflates, its rainbow of colours rising steadily upwards. Then the giant flame-throwers begin to warm the air, and the excited people climb into the basket. The tethers are removed, and gradually the great balloon drifts upwards into the sky.

3) The drive home is framed by a beautiful sunset – M asked “what’s that orange line in the sky?”, it was the vapour trail of a recent aeroplane.
