Lets go fly a kite

Occasionally something happens that seems timeless. Watching my Granddaughter flying a kite, gazing up in awe and concentrating as it looped and hovered happily in the air, was one such moment.

The design of the kite was simple, and hadn’t changed greatly since the time many decades ago I flew a kite with my Dad, on the same windy beach. My own children had carried on the tradition and now I was watching the first flight of my granddaughters kite.

Flying the kite was something that once shown how, she could do independently and safely and she loved it!

If you haven’t tried this with your little one, I strongly recommend that you do.

So inspired was she that when we arrived home, she immediately captured the day in paint. An amazingly detailed picture for a three year old, capturing the sea and sand, the family present and taking pride of place in the air … her kite.
