When we went out to bring in horses this morning, none of them were waiting at their respective gates - which is, of course, the norm. Instead, they were all out in the middle of their pastures/paddocks, standing still and looking up. No hysteria or running around - just calmly standing there looking up. So we looked up . . . . . . and cruising overhead, quite low and moving very slowly (no wind), was a beautiful green & yellow striped balloon! I waved at it, and, lo and behold, it flashed a light signal back at me. I waved twice more, and twice more it flashed a signal back. What fun! The balloon cruised around our property and then headed Northeast, perhaps planning to go out over the ocean. I think the horses enjoyed it as much as I did!
