Just the kind of weather for kite flying, so that just what Conor and I having been trying to do this afternoon. Unfortunately we don’t have a normal kite, we have a ‘stunt’ kite. Stunt in this case obviously means ‘Smashes into the ground rather than flying despite this being the windiest day ever’. It’s been so windy that after less than an hour of unsuccessful kite flying, the string snapped (but this is a great excuse to throw the kite in the bin and buy a new one).
For another example of how bad the wind has been today here is a quick look at the trees where we were flying our kite.
