25th, 26th and 27th June 2010
We went up to Roy's Field for three lovely days.
Lots of kite flying and lots of mucking about and BANGs things.
See how we like to start the day ?
Ron flew lots of kites
Here he is showing supreme skill(s) flying TWO Sode kites
Phil flew THREE of his kites together
We said "Smile nicely" This is what we git.
The Sky was Philled
Meanwhile, Ron was flying something else...
This very taught kite flew in nearly no wind ... all due to Ron's skill, of course.
Martin flew his kite
A whopper ... as you might expect !
Keith flew his kite...
A real favourite for camera lifting but this weekend, the wind was a bit iffy.
Roy's Field is delightful and so we must include a pretty flower picture..
All this no wind brought out a big black bag (the 3 B's)
It wobbled about nicely on its string BUT THEN... the string broke. Oh Dear ! We watched as it climbed and climbed and climbed.......
It was all so sunny and peaceful.
Plenty of time to have a snooze...
Minkey relaxed in his hammock....
......and flew his kite
The Windy things came to life every now and then..

John flew his kite
Ron flew yet another kite
Watch the Birdie
I say Old Chap.. I could do with a beer
All was tranquil..
But what is that contraption out there ?
Something is up
Where do these go ?
What does it say on the card ? Full English, Kites and BANGS. All that tranquil, idyllic kite flying and lazing about was only a third of the story........
Click on the picture to see how the tranquility was shattered.
What a lovely few days.
Thank you Roy and Haley for the field.
Thank you Alan for looking after us.
Thank you Martin, Phil and Ron for joining us.
