I didn't expect to be back so soon but thought I'd share these photos with you.
Yesterday afternoon we pootled off to Weymouth to have a nosey at the kite festival on the beach.
I really liked all these bird um 'flags' rippling in the wind.
Lots of professional kiting going on.
As well as lots of fun kites to watch.
Further along the beach out of the pro zone we tried our little freebie kite out. We've never managed to fly it properly, it plummets pointy end into the sand time after time.
After much huffing and puffing and snatching of turns, each insisting we could do better, we were approached by this helpful chap. A man of few words carrying a dirty old Asda carrier bag, I thought he was tidying the beach, but no. He tied the bag to the kite tail and instructed the eldest jammer to try again as he walked off up the beach back to his duties.
Hey presto, it worked. The kite flew. We fought over turns at flying it instead.
Thank you Asda. Ours may not have been the prettiest kite on the beach but IT FLEW!
