  1. Sounds like this prize is just made for a kite builder/scrapbooker. Oh, that’s me! 😆
  2. For the second week in a row, the weather is not cooperating with those of us who just want to fly kites. https://carolinabeachkiter.com/2022/01/24/the-weather-is-just-not-cooperating/
  3. In between the colder days, we get to the beach to enjoy the winter sunshine and fly whatever kites we can get in the air. https://carolinabeachkiter.com/2022/01/13/squeezing-in-some-flying-days/
  4. It's a New Year and I'm trying to put the blog back together. Here's the first entry. Happy New Year! https://carolinabeachkiter.com/2022/01/05/its-a-new-year-for-flying/
  5. I has been over a year since I've told any tales about our kite flying. There are various reasons - the pandemic kept us closer to home, the weather didn't cooperate, had other things to keep me occupied and I was just too lazy to sit done and write. So I'm going to try and pick it up again. https://wp.me/pdXwt-Ki
  6. Got this quad at the Kites For Cancer auction. Pd250 by Paul Dugard
  7. Happy New Year to all my kite friends. True to form, it is another holiday with rain for the entire long weekend. For me, 2020 has been a crappy year for kite flying. I’m hoping 2021 will be better. In the meantime, I’ll be in front of my sewing machine trying to improve my kite building. Hope this year brings more kites and good flying to all of you.
  8. I finally got my Djinn out to fly. Winds were a little light and gusty and it wasn’t a flight worth an audience. But it felt good. Hopefully when the temperatures start to cool down to a more moderate level, I will be flying it more.
  9. The Governor of NC extended phase 2 of COVID restrictions until July 17. Lots of plans had to be postponed or canceled.
  10. The tale of the runaway kite. One we don't really want to repeat. http://carolinabeachkiter.com/2020/06/25/our-excitement-for-the-week/
  11. I was wondering. How many viewers actually look at the Kitelife blog posts? I post a link in my Kitelife blog Each time I add to my kite flying blog. Does anyone really use the link and read the blog? Is it worth my time to keep on doing it?
  12. I've gotten behind in writing this blog. http://carolinabeachkiter.com/2020/06/13/its-been-a-while/
  13. Another beautiful day on the beach with good winds and good temperatures. http://carolinabeachkiter.com/2020/05/19/the-dragons-among-us/
  14. What better way to spent Mother's Day than to sit on the beach and fly kites. http://carolinabeachkiter.com/2020/05/14/a-happy-mothers-day/
  15. The public beach accesses have opened. http://carolinabeachkiter.com/2020/05/05/were-free-to-fly/
  16. Things are changing here and for the better. http://carolinabeachkiter.com/2020/04/30/on-the-beach-again/
  17. The Saturday before Easter, we went to a field not too far away and flew our Easter kites. http://carolinabeachkiter.com/2020/04/16/flying-at-last/
  18. Happy Easter!! http://carolinabeachkiter.com/2020/04/12/happy-easter-2/
  19. We are complying with the Stay-at-home order and limiting our trips out of the house to the grocery store and the pharmacy. http://carolinabeachkiter.com/2020/04/10/lack-of-motivation/
  20. The Stay At Home order came down. http://carolinabeachkiter.com/2020/04/03/stay-at-home/

    Covid 19

    Beaches are closed. Supplies are limited (I.e. paper products, meat, milk, bread, etc.). While those of us who live here at the coast stay home and are unable to go to the beach, people who have second homes are flocking from the urban areas to get away from the virus and spent time on the beach. Since we are a vacation economy (motels, hotels, condos, restaurants), my guess is 70-80% of the permanent residents are unemployed. I’m afraid a lot of local businesses won’t make it. We are using the time to catch up on yard work and landscaping. I am trying to do some kite building and find an empty field with decent wind and no power lines to put up something. If there are no further blog posts or updates, I have been arrested for trespassing.
