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.

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.

I hope my friends here will make use of the link an
