A Lot Of Hot Air

With great sadness we all gathered this morning to say good bye to our dear friends Karl and Ruis. Ruis had to go back home to be with his family after Maxime went to the bridge. Our hearts are heavy and our prayers are with him and his family. Karl headed back to The Cat Realm to get ready for another Dare.

The four of us decided that we would go out and do a little bird watching this afternoon. While we were busy looking at things we discovered a place where we could rent a hot air balloon for the day . . .

. . . it didn't take too long before we got into a little bit of trouble. If you look closely you can see Roscoe isn't in the basket of the balloon . . .

. . . lending a paw Roscoe quickly was back on board with us. While we were on our ride we all had the feeling that we were not alone. Such a silly feeling as who else would have been up there with us? . . .

. . . what a wonderful day we had.

Zoolatry, SS is home but doesn't have Internet. She lets MoMo come by to visit Socks every once in awhile.

Loved the pink jeep.

The balloon ride looked neat, we could have sworn we saw (nah, couldn't have been)...............

Did you see what I see????????? Oh, oh, it's orange and has wheels AND it's up in the air.

We wonder why the flying bus has been following you guys around Africa.

The balloon ride looks like fun, at least since Roscoe was saved from falling.

OMG - one can just not leave you alone and Roscoe almost falls out of the hot air balloon!!!
I arrived home safe and sound and met Tintin - he is a sweetheart and I know we will be good friends.
Now we are getting ready for the Dare! Don't miss to check today to see the souvenirs I brought home, and tomorrow to get ready for the Dare and of course on Thursday the Dare will be posted!

What a beautiful ride! Good thing you were able to get Roscoe back in that basket.
