Shortly after this video, the balloons started tanking. We ran across Orleans, only to see theballoons sink straight down into the river.
Great. It would have been fine had they sailed away (we attached a note on the string, with thewebsite URL on it)… but now we just feel like assholes. We debated for a while, but the tidestarted sweeping the balloons out to the center of the river. So we gave up, and went back in.
Later, on his walk home, Mike called to let me know that it looked like the ballons had washed ashore,against the embankment. Tomorrow, I think we’re going to try to fish ’em out.
