This past weekend was the Atlantic Balloon Fiesta. The weather was not the best but it was supposed to clear up, so we took a chance and headed to Sussex on Saturday afternoon. When we were getting close, the sky opened up and the clouds disappeared, other than a few wisps on the horizon. The lift off had been delayed, so we got there in plenty of time. Looking around for a good viewpoint, we ended up facing into the sun. We figured this could cause some problems but we could not have been more wrong. Most of the pictures turned out much better than expected and we got a few incredible ones. The sun behind the balloons made them light up and show off their colors. After dark we got some more good pictures of the 'Moon Glow".

We capped off the day with some live music from Chris Cummings. I didn't get to hear my favorite song from him though.
