late afternoon at église St Florentin


As the sun starts to set, the balloons are often to be seen launching from across the river and then flying over downtown Amboise.

    1. Thanks. You sound like an expert on this. I thought you were not a friend of high places.

  3. Have you been up in one of those beautiful balloons?
    The world's a nicer place in my beautiful balloon
    It wears a nicer face in my beautiful balloon
    We can sing a song and sail along the silver sky
    For we can fly, up, up and away
    For we can fly
    In my beautiful, my beautiful balloon

    1. It was fortunate as there have not been as many flights so far this summer. Maybe it has something to do with the high heat.

    1. Yes, one of them is about about 600 years older than the other... and somewhat heavier.
