My lovely mother-in-law bought A and E a kite to play with while we were on holiday a few weeks ago. Flying a kite is something they had never done before and they were very excited! Having never actually flown a kite before myself either, I think I was as keen to use it as them, and what better place to fly it than the British seaside? It’s always windy at the seaside, isn’t it?
We headed out on a couple of very windy evenings with the kite in hand and ready to go. However, when we arrived at the beach, the wind came to an abrupt stop; this kite clearly did want to be flown. Suffice to say we failed to fly it in both Norfolk and Pembrokeshire, but we did see some absolutely glorious sunsets instead!
Last weekend we visited family in Yorkshire, and on Sunday afternoon we decided to try again. We went out to Beverley Westwood to have a go, and this time we succeeded!
It was such a lovely afternoon, and the perfect amount of wind meant that we made kite flying look easy peasy – even I managed it!
