"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

We arrived in Natchez on Wednesday afternoon and spent That evening and all the next day just hanging out with old friends.

The carnival was setting up just down from a friends campsite, so it made for an entertaining morning Thursday.

Friday morning found us up early for the first flight of the Great Mississippi River Balloon Races.  The winds weren’t exactly what we would loved to have, but the skies were pretty much filled with colors or many hues.  I had forgotten my camera in all the excitement and these shots were taken with my phone.

Friday evening there was a balloon glow on the levee along the river.  Our spot was in the RV park.  Getting set up right before dark is always fun.

The first time help always has questions.

And the answers are given with a smile.  We all remember having those same questions and doubts.

Soon it’s inflated and the ballet begins. Sixty five colorful fireflies twinkling in the evening darkness.
