A Common Sight

I live in an English city which is home to one of the most famous balloonists in the world.
Don Cameron.
I have seen Balloons of All shapes and sizes floating over the city for at least the last 30 years.
A huge festival is held every August and mass balloon ascents take place.
To see the sky full of 150 balloons is a wonderful sight.
It's so common over my city but I still stop and watch every time on floats by.
After all these years I have still yet to fly in one.
One day maybe.

Quintesse. Yes I've seen at least 50 on the ground all at once in various states of being inflated.<br />
I've also helped with Balloon recovery when they landed.<br />
I will read your story.<br />

Don is a legend. And a super nice man too.
