We Want To Fly!!

We've broken the record for the longest streak of extreme heat in our area.  Needless to say, we haven't been flying in quite a while. We Want To Fly!!

The Cool Cabana and No Wind

Extreme heat calls for extra care and that is why we are taking the Cool Cabana with us to the beach each time we fly.  All it takes is one day of over-exposure to the heat to make us come to this conclusion.  And it seems the heat chases away the wind.  But being stubborn, we got some kites in the sky The Cool Cabana and No Wind

A Hot Independence Day Weekend

We celebrated Independence Day with a kite club fly of red/white/blue kites.  There was a large variety of kites in the sky which made quite a show for people on the beach and people touring Fort Macon.   A Hot Independence Day Weekend

Kite Flying Withdrawal

It is dangerous to not fly kites for a while.  Withdrawal often leads to acquisition.  In this case, a large acquisition. Kite Flying Withdrawal

Our First Fly Of 2019

After missing the New Year's Day kite fly on the beach, we made it out this past weekend for our first kite fly of 2019.  Our First Fly Of 2019

This Is Not A Kite Festival

We traveled to Florida to attend Kitemania South.  The weather didn't cooperate all that much but the company was great.  We brought light and medium wind kites and, of course, the winds were "blowing a gale".  And then there was the rain.  We're planning on going again next year.  Hopefully we'll have the right kites and better weather.

Another Dreary Weekend

There wasn't much flying going on the past week.  Mostly because the weather wasn't cooperating.  Sheer stubbornness had a couple of kites in the air.  That and the chance to spend some time with the grandchildren.  As you can see, we're starting them out very young. Another Dreary Weekend

Happy Father's Day

Father's Day was a beautiful day to fly kites, lower temperatures, lower humidity and higher winds.  But not too high.  And we had some new kites to fly.   Happy Father's Day

A Time Of Quiet Desperation

The weather has truly been against us as far as the community kite fly.  And this day was no exception.  Early morning rain, cloudy skies and high winds made it dark and gloomy and questionable for flying.  However, there were a couple of desperate people who were willing to take a chance and put a kite in the air.

We've Been Invaded

The NC State Parks System turned 100 years old this year.  Fort Macon State Park, our local kite flying field, had a huge celebration by re-creating the Siege of Fort Macon.  The re-enactors were everywhere, including where we usually fly.  They enjoyed watching us fly kites and we appreciated the work they put into the re-enactment.  It made for a special weekend for all.

Playing Catch-Up II

Here's the continuation of my attempt at catching up.  I'm almost there.  This one is a little more introspective.  I do have my moments, rare though they may be.   Playing Catch-Up II

Playing Catch-Up III

At last, I'm finally caught up with our flying days.  And with the new additions to our kite bags.  Yes, I said new additions.  Take a look and enjoy. Playing Catch-Up III

The Earth Day Celebration

The Carolina Kite Club was asked to put some color in the sky for the Earth Day Celebration at Fort Macon State Park.  Unfortunately, strong winds made it unwise and unsafe to fly kites on the beach that day.  Although some did try.   The Earth Day Celebration

It's A Beautiful Morning

It was close to a perfect day for flying kites.  Lower winds, warm temperatures and sunshine (at least for a while).  And a chance to fly some new single line kites and try out the Reflex. It's A Beautiful Morning

Memorial Day Weekend 2016

Because the holiday weekends on the beach are the ultimate crazy, we don't plan on flying much.  This Memorial Day tropical storm Bonnie threw in an additional curve in everyone's plans.  However, there still was an indoor kiting program to present during the holiday which kept kiting on our minds.  A short fly was in order after the crowds left.

Where There's A Will...

When one hasn't flown much in a while, desperation can lead to innovation.  And such was last week's kite fly..  Where There's A Will...

The Problem With 'Hanging Out' At The Kite Shop

The weather for the weekly kite club fly was once again unfavorable.  So instead of flying we went to the kite shop to visit with other flyers and see what was new.  The problem was there was something new and I ended up taking more kites home with me.  Check out the following blog link to find out what is new in my kite bag.

What A Kite Flier Does...

This past weekend was the weekly kite club fly.  While the weather was great, the wind was nonexistent.  As it has been in many Sundays past.  And so this is the routine for a non-wind day. What A Kite Flier Does….

The Annual Mile of Hope Kite Fly

The Mile of Hope is a weekend away for families who have a child who has cancer.  The children get to spend time on the beach, playing in the sand and flying kites.  The Carolian Kite Club members put on a show of kites in the air and help solve any kite flying problems that may occur.

Been There, Done That

Quite a while ago, I started a kiting blog on another site.  The link to that blog has been in my signature.  While I think this feature makes for a better placement of a kiting blog, it is a major undertaking to migrate and already established blog from one site to another.  One I am not technically up to doing.  So, instead, I'm going to put a link in this blog whenever there is a new posting to my kiting blog. I hope my friends here will make use of the link an
