A closer view of the Hot Air Balloons at Bristol Balloon Fiesta 2008. The weather was a huge let down in the end and so it is doubtful that we will return this year. However, it was fascinating to watch this house shape balloon slowly inflate. As you can see the chimney was the last part of the shape to fill with air. This balloon is sponsored by the Stroud and Swindon Building Society – hence the Mortgages and Savings on the side.
