Hot air balloons

These posts are going to make Waterford sound like a really cool place where things happen all the time, I assure you that is not the case it just so happens that this year a lot of events have been happening. (probably because of the 1100 birthday of the city.)

Anyways, Sunday saw the start of the 44th Irish National hot air balloon championships. I again had never heard of this or been to one before so I am hoping to attend at least one of the specified venues to see all 40 balloons together.

On Sunday though I completely misread the timetable meaning we missed the taking off of the balloons but we did see them as the passed over my Mom’s house. My cousin was at the balloon launch so some of her photos are below also. Hopefully (weather & travel times permitting) I will get to see them all together next Sunday, so keep an eye out for that.

Until next time,
