yes, indeed. i sailed through the golden dawn sky over the napa vineyards in a basket under a colorful parachute of hot air. check that one off the bucket list. it was really, truly incredible – everything i’d wished a hot air balloon ride would be and more.
the scenery was outrageous. i took too many pictures.
we stopped for brunch at a cafe in a red barn, and walked through some rows in the foliagey, gilded vineyards, and stopped at the golden gate overlook because we simply had to to celebrate such a euphoric sunny day in the bay.
not a bad saturday morning…!
