Today we went down to the Strand (one of our local beaches) to see the kite fest.
The Strand is always a popular place. It has fabulous public spaces. Most weekends there are lots of weddings held along the shore.
Today it was particularly busy.
Lots of people wanted to watch the kites in action.
This one looks like a patchwork kite.
Some disasters occurred.
But they were quickly remedied.
We even watched a tandem parachute jump that looked like it would land right in the middle of the kites, but managed to navigate safely to the beach front.
My children were in fine foolish form.
Notice that my daughter had a fringe (bangs for you guys who don’t know what I mean) cut yesterday. She hasn’t had one since she was quite young. It has afflicted her with a mysterious hair flicking and constant adjusting disease.
Don’t tell her that I said this, but man!. It makes her look a lot like her brother! Look at these green eyes.
Life is good. Wish it would stay like this.
