Just north of us is a large center for hot air balloons and also sky diving. Its a very popular site with thousands of visitors every year. We often see several hot air balloons at once.
They are alot braver than I am!
They do have accidents occasionally and one landed on a busy street next to the interstate just this last month. Click on the link for the story.
We've had alot of rain and after a recent storm, I was able to capture this rainbow. As you can see, our town has plenty of open spaces and we like it that way. So much of Southern California has gotten paved over, at least along the coast. I've shared alot of the open spots of the inland which are wonderful in past posts. Traffic is bad also on the coast, even my hometown of Oceanside is total chaos on the roadways. Up where our town is, its still relatively peaceful. Much like it was years ago. Very thankful for small towns.
Our youngest son brought home a wonderful find. He has it on Craigslist as he's trying to save money for his new daughter, Emma Grace.
