Life is full of surprises — but sometimes they can give us more than we bargained for.
Last week, I was out walking the dog
When a hot air balloon swooped over my head
And landed on the green before slowly teetering on its side.
(I’ve never been dive-bombed by a balloon before!)
Planes are a little more reliable —
Big and noisy but they manage to stop in time…
A couple of months ago, I was enjoying an early morning sunrise
When I heard a honking in my ear.
A duck shot past me, grazing my cheek
And nearly knocking the camera out of my hands.
(Can you see the duck in the bottom left of the photo?)
I’m always startled when those sticks in the path
Slither over my feet…
(Perhaps you could call this foot-bombing?)
My favourite surprise though
Is a glorious sunset and a balloon … in the distance.
