Barbara and I woke up at 3AM Thursday morning, February 2, 2012 and drove south from Los Angeles to Temecula, which is by San Diego (2 hour drive). It was 36 degrees F and the flames feeding hot air into the balloon kept us warm. Unlike an airplane, the silence of the balloon flight made the one-hour meandering journey very beautiful. Wine tasting was part of the tour. I regret I did not make a video of the angry woman who ran out of her home trying to shoo the balloon from landing in her vacant field. I was so fascinated by her tirade that I neglected to video it.
