Go Fly a Kite

Sunday, September 20, 2009

My wife and I both work on Saturdays so that leaves Sunday for family day. We decided to head over to the coast and let the kids fly kites and the dogs run on the beach. We stopped at Fred Meyer first and searched the shelves until my wife came up with the last two kites in existence. We ended up taking the hour or so drive to Westport. The weather was perfect. A comfortable temperature and just enough wind for the kites. We played at the beach for a couple of hours or so, then headed a few miles south to Grayland to our favorite restaurant Bennett's. After dinner we went back to the beach to catch the sunset. Knowing I was going to grab my camera and that I'd be there for a while our youngest decided to bring her kite back out. That provided me with the scenic Sunday shot I needed. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

    Flying a kite on the coast sounds devine. Love the capture of gorgeous colors and the silohuet of your daughter.

    That's one of the nicest sunsets I've seen, Don...and what makes it so special is the silhouette of your daughter flying her kite.

    This, I think, is a frame and hang!

    Have a great day!

  11. Thanks a bunch everyone!

    Rob: I didn't but you don't know how close you are. The same daughter missed getting splattered by a seagull by no more than six inches. What a mess that would have been.

    Jacob: I appreciate that. We just may do that one of these days.

  12. AB Says:

    Beautiful sunset and great composition with your daughter gazing at her out-of-picture kite.

    Oh, wow! Special is the only word that fits, and still and all, it's not a good enough word to describe this photo. What momentous memories for everyone!
