Happy Monday morning! Welcome to day two of our anniversary trip.
Very early, in the wee hours of the morning with the fog covering the land like a blanket, handsome and I dove to my anniversary surprise. It was a hot air balloon ride! We had been talking about going on a balloon ride since were dating, that’s what made it such a perfect gift for our 25th anniversary.
from A Grape Escape prepare the balloon for our excursion.
Once the balloon was full with air,
we climbed in to the basket, and up, up and away we went. (I was a little nervous at first, being up in the sky, literally in a woven basket)
It only took a moment before we were enjoying beauty around us, soaring over Temecula. Breathtaking, is the only word I can think of to describe the feeling of floating through the air by the temperament of the wind.
After we were back on land, Rusty drove us to a charming arbored picnic area. And, in true Hot Air Balloon tradition, Rusty served us Champagne and explained the tradition of a champagne toast at the end of each flight; it comes from the French to commemorate a safe landing.
A Grape Escape even surprised handsome and myself with an anniversary cake.
It was a sweet ending for a memorable day, one I will treasure always.
