Balloons back in Martinborough

After quite a few years away from Martinborough, the Balloons Over Wairarapa annual festival came back today to do an early morning lift-off. The balloonists were very lucky – the Big Storm is on its way down the North Island but hasn’t reached here yet. It was almost calm, though the cloud had come in, which made the balloons less colourful.

Looking down our street towards the Martrinborough School, where the baloonists had a competition to see how close they could get, dropping an object onto a marker on the ground.
