A windy winters day.

The homesick kite.

The homesick kite.

My kite flying spirit had been in hibernation for most of the winter. But today the wind was begging me for some kite action. Picking up some kites from the storage me and my youngest daughter went to the nearest field.

First to fly was an experiment with a Rokkaku type of kite. The wind was too strong so after just a couple of minutes the kite broke the line. After we had given up looking for the lost kite we went home. And guess what we found, the kite had landed in our garden, I bet it flew straight home.

Getting stronger line we let loose the Barn Door kite. It flew beautiful and gave us great joy. The tail of plastic band was added to get some stability. After an hour of flight we went home, it was freezing cold, about -10 C. With the kite under my arm we went home with smiling faces, it was a good day.
