The latest kite fly was again cold and very windy. So windy, in fact, I only put delta kites in the truck and grabbed our heavier lines. When I got on the beach, I quickly decided that two of the deltas I brought would have more pull than I cared to deal with that day. So, once again, I only put up two kites and spent the rest of the morning visiting with the other fliers.
We had a couple of out-of-town flyers joining us and they made a point of putting lots of kites in the sky. Looking upwind, kite anchors were popping up all over the beach with no rhyme or reason. Well, there was a reason. We didn’t want to have a lot of tangled kite lines.
One more community kite fly coming up and then it’s off on a trip to Maryland for the Maryland Kite Society Kitebuilders Retreat. This year we’ll be building Chris Hanson’s Solar Cell kite. I’ve still got the appliqué to do on my sail pieces but I, at least have them all cut out and the patterns transferred. I should have no problem getting them done. The big task after that is just planning what I need to take. As usual, I will probably take more than I need. Thank goodness we have a truck.
Looking at the calendar, it’s going to be a busy Spring and early Summer. Hopefully, that means I’ll have lots to write about. So here’s to good winds and good weather.
Fair Winds All
