The problem was...it's an island.
One way in,
one way out.This made for lots of traffic. There were supposed to be 42 balloons participating. I think I counted a total of maybe 13 that actually flew. There was a slight wind all three days. I guess anything over 5 mph and the balloons stay grounded. Aside from the balloons there were ultra lights as well as bi-planes.

|The view of the ferris wheel from across the channel.|
|Its, a car, it's a boat...it's definatly cute!|
|This Jack-in-the-box was huge!|
He got off the ground, but didn't travel very far before coming down again.
|There are several light houses dotting the shore of the island.|
Perfect ending of a perfect day?
A beautiful sunset.
Lake Havasu and the Parker Strip are right there at the
top of my list of my all time favorite spots to getaway!
Water, desert heat, and carefree days,
yup my favorite...
rates right up there with these two guys!
Next year? Count me in!
