We had decided to Fly at the Lade, Lydd-on-Sea on New Years day, and so it was that several of us arrived at around midday on a cold damp an windless day. Peter wins prizes for being first in the sky with his phoenix, and also for being longest in the sky. I flew a roller, briefly, but it was hard work, only very occasionally staying aloft without constant work. Steve, being the more energetic of us, managed to fly his 4 line kite for a short while, though at one point it did look as if he was going to end up in Dungeness.

Most annoying part is that I still have a car full of kites awaiting their first flight.

Let's hope for a bit more wind next time we try to fly somewhere.
