It’s been windy here lately but I hadn’t thought of kites until we read a couple of stories here at home and the library that had kites in it!
After we finished ‘Rhyme Time’ at our local library we ducked into Searle’s. Searle’s is like a cavern of almost anything you could ever want. When we first moved here we used to go in every weekend to ask the owner Bearnie Searle for odd things.
We gave up when we asked if he had a boat, and he replied ‘I think we have a zodiac out the back still.’ 🤣
Anyway, of course they had kites. We bought a cheap one for $4.95. Bernie told us that he used to make kites, and that his son took one to school but it was blowing so hard that he let it go. It travelled out to the cattle yards before it landed. 🤣
It was so much fun! I’ve now looked on eBay to see if we can get a better one because this one won’t last long in our wind!
