Mid June was the Lincoln City Summer Kite Festival
That's my purple cuttlefish, Cuddles, in the upper right, and my Fugu, Hootie, down at the bottom
Enjoy Cuddles while he's in the air...more on that later...
I also put up my Brassington Delta in the middle there
Looking inside the fugu
It was a gorgeous day at the beach with winds between 10-15 mph
It took some work keeping the kids, and some adults, out from under Hootie as he bounced about the ground (which is what he's meant to do)
My setup on the beach
That's the lifter for Cuddles...it's no longer over the beach...now it's over a row of houses. Oh yeah, and that's Cuddles in the trees. This happened about 5 min before I was about to bring him down...go figure.
Yep...not much more to say here, other than this is a kiter's nightmare. In case you're wondering, I didn't properly anchor him on the beach for when the winds picked up.
Believe it or not, with the help of a bunch of the other kiters we did get him out of the tree, and shockingly, mostly unharmed. So I guess it's sort of a happy ending, in that it could have been much much worse...you see that powerline...
