Last Saturday Wendy and I went to
Poles with small kites and windsocks together with wind machines made for a colourful display.

|My Spirit of the Air Mega Delta|
Several attempts to launch my own Mega Delta met with little success it being quite a heavy kite I think the longest it stayed in the air was about 30 seconds and I wasn’t even flying it at the time!
The lack of wind meant only the lightest of kites could be flown.

Despite the lack of wind it was a lovely day and quite a few kites were lent out to members of the public mainly children who had the energy to run around and create enough wind to fly them.
A few attempts were made to fly line laundry, but the wind was not strong enough for the lifter kites to maintain height, however this Large Bee flew for a while.
Towards late afternoon the wind picked up slightly and a few more kites were flown including a couple of people who had brought along their Indian Fighting Kites
Many other Kites were flown during the day, some I managed to photograph.

As always I know very little about the names of the Kites or their owners and I am more than happy to add or change information attached to any of the pictures, so please let me know - it is the only way I will learn properly.
