We are complying with the Stay-at-home order and limiting our trips out of the house to the grocery store and the pharmacy. There is still quite a bit of traffic locally and there are still people who are gathering on the beaches. My kite flying has been very limited. I tried to fly in the backyard and had moderate success with the light wind glider kite, the Emong by Flying Wings Kites.
I’m sure the neighbors found it amusing watching me stumble around the backyard with a kite string in one hand and a cell phone in the other. At one point the wind appeared to be picking up and I tried another kite I happened to have handy, the Joel Scholz Parrot by Premier Kites. While it did go up for a while, it was never very high and needed constant supervision.
As for my kite building, I have been suffering from a serious lack of motivation. Part of which was due to the fact I was going to have to crawl on the floor in order to get the whole appliqué piece properly situated on the main sail. One of the drawbacks of not having a large table to work on. I finally convinced myself to just get down and get it done. With absolutely no help from my able assistant.
And so, life goes on. Stay safe everyone.
