After missing the New Year’s Day kite fly on the beach, we made it out this past weekend for our first kite fly of 2019. The day was sunny, relatively warm with light to moderate winds. The regular kite flyers were there and a couple of our out-of-town flyers had come down for an extended holiday. There were so many kites in the air you would have thought it was a festival.
I spent most of the time photographing the kites and catching up on what flying I had missed over the New Year’s holiday. They all told me it was the best fly ever. I hated to miss it but I must admit grandchildren rate higher than kite flying. And we had a great visit (and second Christmas) with ours.
The highlight of the fly was a group flight of the Randy Tom warrior princesses. Several of us have purchased Randy’s kites over the years and we just happened to have them in our kite bags. I am happy to say I have two of the warrior princess kites and both of them were in the air on this day.
Before leaving I brought out my Rainbow Revolution quad line kite. It’s a special kite I got from a friend and don’t fly it very often. Because I was flying it, there was no one to get a photo. I guess I’ll just have to work out a remote camera arrangement. Though I’d rather carry extra kites than extra camera equipment.
It was a grand day and we stayed longer than usual, enjoying the sunshine. Here’s to hoping that it is a sign of more grand days to come.
