Just got back from the Long Beach Kite festival in Washington. Wow, I had no idea that kite flying could be well, so popular. We talked to one man who had brought 100 kites with him, one of which had a fancy camera attached to its string??? We had beautiful weather (amazingly) and had just a great time with our friends and their kids. Did not have any heart stopping mad urges to cry pineapple or desperate searches for a bathroom so that was a huge bonus and allowed me to really enjoy myself. Thought you might like to see a few pics……..There were big ones, not really sure what this one was supposed to be…There was some fantastic synchronized flying by an old guy called Ray Ray, who is an institution and looked to be about 80 years old, but flew these three kites all at once in an amazing display.All, colors and shapes.I loved this oneI have about a million pictures of kites now, oh and one duck………..
