"Let's Go Fly A Kite..."


The other day mom and I went to the beach - it was very windy so it was the perfect day for flying a kite. On the beach was a gentleman flying this trick kite all over the place - he was so good at it. We complimented him on his skill, he told us that he had been flying this type of kite for 7 years and that he had recently been to a competition - he was very funny -- he told me and mom that he thought he was "pretty good" until he went to the competition -- when he saw the other "flyers" he felt like they all had their Masters in kite flying while he was still in Kindergarten! We cracked up! The kite was fun to watch we felt he really put on a good show. Here it is flying out over the Gulf - some how he managed to just let the kite "hover" there for a few minutes it was very cool.

Those are amazing to watch. I had a friend that had one and we went to a kite festival where there were guys flying three attached as one - stunt kites. Amazing things and powerful. She was leaning all the way back almost level to the ground just to keep hold of the kite.

Who knew - an art to flying kites? That's fantastic! Back in my kite flying days it was all I could do to not trip over my own pigeon toed feet while running to just get the thing up in the air! Thanks for sharing.
