What an awesome morning had by all on the water yesterday. The Canberra Balloon Festival is currently on and the weather was immaculate on Monday morning.
A group of SUP'ers from High Country SUP and Capital SUP departed at 6:30am to take in the festivities from the water. With an unimpeded view of the action it was something to behold.
If you are passing through Canberra prior to 16th March then make sure you get up early (first balloon normally lifts off around 6:45am) and head down to the parliamentary precinct to catch it. If not then get down/up/over here next year to check it out.
I still don't know what the "Sky Whale" balloon is all about, apart from giving grown men another chance to giggle about boobs.
