Kite flying on a windy day in Huntington Beach.
It’s funny how time flies when you’re having fun. Today I spent 12 hours at the beach, we started at 9am and ended with a bonfire at 8pm. I can’t recall the last time I spent this much time at the beach, but it was fun.
The day before I went out in search of the perfect kite. To my surprise, kites are not easy to find anymore. Target, CVS and Walmart stores where all fails, nothing except the usual kid kites! My wife and I were very surprised.
Finally, I found a 5 ft wide wingspan kite shaped like a Blue Angel Jet. Yes, that’s me in the image, my wife took the picture. After a few tries, I got the hang of it, but later in the day the wind picked up and it became difficult to hold on. The stress of the kite pulling the strings became very strong, the handles began to bend as the wind intensified.
I survived and so did the kite. Overall it was a beautiful day at Huntington Beach. I can’t wait for next year’s Huntington Beach Kite Party!
