ABC Wednesday - Kites

I was going to do kayak for this week which just proves how the memory plays tricks because when I looked at the photos they were canoes, and no, despite my browse of the dictionary I could find no archaic spelling with a K. Then I remembered I had some kites from the first Kitefest held earlier in the year at Haverigg.
There were all sorts of shapes and sizes
and the Fusion Team dancing kites to music.  Here they are practising before taking the field.  Not easy on this weekend because despite the fact there are a number of Kite Surfing events held locally because of the reliability of the wind the early part of the year was notable for warm and and windless weather. If you were a
butterfly it would be OK, but the huge Dragon Kites had difficulty getting off the ground.  No matter
there was a kite retail opportunity in the far tent and pancakes here or my favoured option
a kool ice cream.  The event took place on the Haverigg Rugby Ground a good space for a kids kick around.

Terrific variety of Kites. I love the huge dragonfly.
Ice cream is always (K)ool for me.

I love to see kites! I was going to say it was a Koool post -- but you beat me to it!

Beautiful kits.

Kids at Heart is one of my ABC this week.

Great kayak, no, kite post!! Our winds here in the spring are a bit too gusty for kite flying, I'm afraid.

I prefer kites to kayaks! Or even to kanoes. That word does drive spellcheck krazy. And so did that. Great photos!!

What a lovely day. It's wonderful to see kites flying. Kite dancing must have been fun to watch, too.

I miss this kind of activity. Now that most of the time is rainy days we can't have a fun with kites like this. Thanks for sharing. :)
