Balloons Over The Moon

58 red and Black balloons crossed the night sky over Denbigh this evening, most were illuminated briefly by the full moon
Not too much fuss.....not too much drama
A few glasses of champagne were raised
Andrew would have liked it!

  25. Is it really a year since Andrew died? It seems like yesterday. I wonder where the deflated balloons will end up.
