Sunday afternoon delivered nothing less that superb Gold Coast weather & a healthy ocean breeze. There was nothing more fitting to do than have a small BBQ and take Laura's new kite for a test run. Our GF feast of sausages & bread was very tasty indeed, even though our BBQ prowess was lacking. Afterwards though, kite launching exploits began, which involved a remarkable amount of running.
Once we had worked out our tactic & after extending the string a few times, Laura & I managed to get the kite stuck in the upper branches of the tallest tree in the park... It did survive but we'll be keeping a tighter leash on it next time around!
|Lovely Laura preparing our feast|
|The kite is launched|
|Yours truly playing it safe but having far too much fun|
|Gentlemen friends taking over kite duties with a much longer string!|
Much fun was had by all - and Mr Squid, the worlds greatest kite, will most definitely be making another skyward appearance on Australia Day.
If you don't know the song I refer to above, please do yourself a huge favour & watch the scene now :)
