That be the kite... in all her momentary glory.
There was a bit of a blow going on out there... so I gathered up the kids, camera and m'darl'en z and headed out to a soccer field. (damnable golfers have reclaimed their golf course).
The kite... I'm calling it The Hindenburg... had a maiden voyage of about 18 feet straight up...
... and then straight down in a massive, accelerating dive.
So I'm thinking I need to rework the nature of the stuff that fills in the spaces in the frame. Tissue paper just can not take the sudden changes of heart that beset a kite of such epic proportions.
It was fun while it lasted... and her next voyage will be... er... at an as yet unspecified time.
