The weather forecast was talking summer. Nice temps and a light onshore breeze. All that’s required for a lazy day on the beach.
So after finishing the domestic duties I hopped in the car and drove off. As always I watched for signs of wind along the way. Branches swaying, leaves rustling, flags waving, yeah, you know. It looked really good when I stopped at the parking and started to walk that five minutes walk down to the beach.
I got there … and the wind suddenly decided to take five! Hmmmm….. Well, I put together a couple of light wind kites and waited. Tried to do some flying too, but it was a fight.
After an hour or so I gave it all up, packed the kites and my gear, picked up the bag and walked back to the car.
Off course, when I got home the wind picked up again and stayed pretty good all evening…
Me…. Nope, I didn’t get another go. Bad timing!
