Kissing the Lake
one of the coolest things to happen during our summer vacation in Michigan was watching a hot air balloon touch down on the lake while we were having dinner one night. Everyone though it was an emergency landing-- hence the boats that circled it. But the operator kept waving them away. Apparently it's common for hot air balloons to do this as part of the ride. It was a warm summer night, and Michigan is covered by tiny lakes such as this. How cool would that be to bounce from lake to lake, watching the sky change from day to night?
