Kite

Many of you will have Winter at this time of year especially over Christmas.  For us in the Southern Hemisphere this is our Christmas. Being Summer, many people spend time at the beach.


When we lived in Mount Maunganui I took many photos of people and happenings on the local beach. This boy and his father were flying their kite in the breeze.



When it fell down I could see the disappointment on his face but like a trooper he picked it up and started to fly it all over again. Kite flying is something some families do on warm days for a bit of fun.

Linking up with Through my lensMy corner of the world and Wordless Wednesday.

Kite flying can be as frustrating as it can be fun!

The grandkids used to love flying kites. So did I. Once upon a time. Lots of fun on the beach

There is something very exciting about managing to get your kite flying in the breeze.

I'd love to fly a kite on the beach. I haven't flown a kite since I was a little kid. So, a very long time.

Don't you just love a kite ( and a beach). That beach could host a kite festival. In Grrece kites are big in one of the days just before easter.

It's not often I get to Devonport on Auckland's North Shore as there are 2 ways to get there. One is by ferry from the opposite side...
