I went on Saturday morning, which started out overcast and gray. I was uncertain if they would still be holding the kite party because of the tsunami dangers from the horrible and devastating earthquake in Japan the day before. But, I decided to go ahead and head on down to check it out anyway. I was a little nervous about being on the beach, but I think the warnings had already expired, so I thought it should be safe. And as it turns out, it was, but I did keep a wary eye on the surf throughout my stay!
I really liked this caterpillar, but I had to work to get him. He had a bit of a difficult time getting air!
Something about watching kites takes me back to long, lazy summers, lying on my back in carpets of soft, fragrant, green grass, watching kites and clouds in the bright, blue sky. Back to the days when I had nothing more to worry about than which combination of sodas to order at the local hangout. Makes me want to go fly a kite myself!
I will be anxious for the next Seal Beach Kite festival in October. It is billed as the largest kite festival on the west coast. If I get a chance to go, I'll be sure to share!
Well, I guess that is just about it for now! I hope you enjoyed this little excursion! Until next time! Baci per i miei amici!
