Wind powered

Let it blow; who cares?
I've a kite out there,
With a board that I ride,
And a string sort of thing ...

(Apologies to A.A. Milne.)

Kite surfing, Boundary Bay

Just the kites, seen from the far side of the dunes.

A few minutes later, the guy with the blue kite was 'way over on the far side of the bay. That was a brisk wind!

A Skywatch post.


  1. The second picture is disconcertingly like where I live. I might have mistaken one for the other. The kite surfers here go so fast they have a fair chance of racing along beside the cars crossing the causeway to Portland. This link
    is to one of the pictures I have taken.

  2. I love watching kite surfers. Amazing how fast they go with a brisk wind. Beautiful skies!


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
