Let's Go Fly a Kite

A very different start to the day today; the sun only burnt the mist away latish in the afternoon and so most of the day we were blanketed in a cold, grey fog.

It was in this chilly setting that the Midlands Kite Flyers brought their aerial contraptions down to a still busy Sconce Park for a public flying session. It was a really very still day, so there was more of kites propped on car doors than your actual kite flying.

There was a beautiful purple-blue and very large bird kite, but when it did finally get airborne all it did was slowly and gracefully back to earth again, leaving its owner to roll the string back up with a defeated air.

A much smaller kite did manage to get skyward and hover high above the park-goers.

  1. Always sad when the weather defeats our human plans. They tried.

  2. Ha! It was a dreeky day for kites indeed!

  3. I love flying kites, it was beautiful. Unfortunely, I can't fly sinse I accident.
