Several of the local fliers made the trip up to Rougham Airfield (brilliant flying site) to join in with the Suffolk Kite Flyers O.S.O.W.
Goodly number of Revs about and some more folk got to have their first try on the handles, a nice sunny day and a good fun days flying.
Around 270 kites airborne at 3pm.

Managed an hour or so of what was a perfect day down at Stokes Bay with the Solent Kite Flyers including KevR and my new friends Mr Git and Tine ...

Was late getting down because my daughter (Molly aged 7) was busy winning here first ever cross country race at school beating the girls 2 years above her :ani_yahoo:

Sometimes its worth sacrificing a perfect flying day .. or at least half of it :wub: ;)

Way to go Molly! :clap; :cup_1st:
She is beautiful.... well done, Jonesey!

Great photos everyone!
Not that we need an excuse to fly, but there should be another World Kite Day.... perhaps one a month....ok, one a week....where if you fly, you get the day off with pay; a paid holiday! Hmmmmmm, I think I fell asleep and was dreaming....what a concept though!

One Sky - One World.

My sister is over from Oz so I took her to The Cotswolds for the w/e to visit friends. Very light winds and only one kite, so 'The Girls' set out for a country walk and pub lunch, and I drove on to Coley Ridge , Gloucestershire, to see if there was any flying to be had. The sun was pleasantly warm, there were several walkers enjoying the view from the ridge, but the only other flier was a little girl out with her dad and a classic diamond shaped single-liner, complete with paper bows in the tail of course.

I enjoyed several hours of relaxed and lazy flying in what was probably the UK's last decent sunny day this year. Behind me sat three very elderly ladies in thick winter coats and best hats, all clutching their handbags tightly in their laps. Dread to think which one had been doing the driving! Another bench-seat was occupied by a man talking complete rubbish whilst 'chatting up' the woman next to him and he seemed to be doing very well - she was giggling at laughing at everything he said. It was very heartening since they were both in their 70's and they didn't hang around for too long either - something better to be doing back home perhaps.

Meanwhile, I had plenty of time between breezes to sit down and ponder One Sky - One World. Best wishes across the miles to you all.

Bob, Star and I had a great day in St Pete on Sunday....the winds were steady NE at about 10. We shared the day with some passers by, gave a kite away to a little girl and her parents, saw a rainbow and Bob took time to show a young man how to fly..........it was a beautiful day.
