Go fly a kite!

You have seen our photos from San Francisco so you know the wind was a constant part of the atmosphere. On the last day we bought a kite from a shop right at the pier and took it to a small beach to fly it.
Wouldn't you know, the one place we chose was sheltered from the wind so flying the "easy fly" kite was more of a challenge than it should have been! But Kyle has experience flying kites as a kid and he was determined to make it fly for Grace.
Grace also noticed the people (in wet suits!) swimming laps in the water, so she took off her shoes, pulled up her leggings, and rolled up her sleeves so she could get a little time in the water too. The swimmers said the water temperature was about 55 degrees but it didn't seem to bother Grace one bit!

Beautiful shots. The day looked bright and clear. Kyle did a good job without alot of wind. The kite is really pretty. I love the shots of the kite in the sky.

Now that looks like real fun...Kudoos to Kyle for getting the kite to fly. Grace, you made me cold watching you in 55 degree water...the water in FL is 75 to 80degrees, that's more like it!
