  4. Congratulations on capturing those balloons! I’ve trained my kids to understand we don’t do that because it always ends up hurting animals down the road. I bet you see interesting things in the water when you kayak sometimes.

  8. Glad you captured them. Balloons are quite a controversial item, right? Create hazards for marine creatures….. Ban them i say!!

  12. This makes me sad, then happy. Floating balloons are forlorn. And bad for the environment. But yay for the retrieval, even if their escape plan was foiled.

  14. Awww … those balloons never made it to the sky. hahaha
    What a mess it would have been if a fish had eaten them. Glad you saved a lot of sealife. ~~~ : – )

    • I think they almost certainly did make it to the sky, where they floated for a few days before losing enough helium to descend… Here’s another escapee that clearly did make it to the sky:
