Tammy and I went to the annual Kite Festival at Ft Fisher today and we enjoyed a beautiful morning watching grown folks fly kites. The weather was great, sunny with a good breeze blowing off the beach. This was organized as a “fun fly” without competitions or rules other than safety to unofficially wrap up the kite-flying year.
This year we were able to walk among the flyers and had the chance to talk with a couple from Maryland that had come in for the weekend to fly their kites. They travel up and down the east coast attending numerous kite festivals during the year.
With the good weather today, when we left about 11:30am the beach area was getting pretty crowed with spectators and parking had overflowed out of the parking lot.
I enjoyed being on the beach with Tammy and was able to take photos with my camera and take some videos with the go pro. Hopefully I will get good enough with the editing process to post some stuff to YouTube!
The festival is in it’s 12th year and is always held on the first weekend of November, so mark your calendar and join Tammy and I next year.
Thanks for visiting our site, and come back again!
