Living on the north west coast one thing you can be sure of is there will be a wind. But this year's spring has been most unusual, high temperatures for the time of year and still days. When the first Western Lake District kite festival was planned to be held at Haverigg one thing that would be expected would be a strong wind.
Nope. Despite this the Fusion display team did manage to put on a series of musical displays but for the large
Chinese kites the 10 mile wind was not enough. Everybody had fun flying kites so we had a nice afternoon out and of course
an ice cream. You can also tell from this photo that the event was held on the Millom Rugby Union ground. They are hoping to hold another Kitefest next year,

I love kites! And the ones that got up at your festival look beautiful against the blue skies.
Weather has a way of doing what it wants regardless of our plans doesn't it?

Too right Sallie, the previous day there was a thunderstorm.
