This afternoon we launched from Crow Hall Farm Gooderstone. September is a lovely time to fly. The weather is generally more stable at this time of the year as the sun has lost a little of its strength so our local climate starts to settle down a little. Also at this time of year there is richness of colour from the golden fields of stubble and wide variations of green, in short a wonderful opportunity to grab some stunning photographs. Our balloon flight climbed up to 2,000 feet. The wash was in clear view along with the Lincolnshire coast. Looking out to our southwest Ely cathedral stands proudly in the horizon. Passing over Oxborough Hall is always a treat with its unique mooted architecture and ornate gardens, now over seen by the National Trust. It is well worth a family visit. On and upwards we go now passing over the A143 and over the aqueduct south of the village of Stoke Ferry. As we descend the wind changes and we turn a little more to the east passing north of the vast sugar beet factory at whissington, eventually landing in a stubble field in the parish of Hilgay adjacent to the A10. We enjoy our champagne enjoying the most beautiful harvest sunset.
Fantastic evening you are a very professional and friendly team. Your pilot really did make the flight so interesting with his local knowledge. I will spread to word!!!
