What a wonderful weekend! And the weather was great, too. At least yesterday the skies were clear, the temperatures mild, and the wind...well, it wasn't South Dakota strength, but there was a light breeze that encouraged thousands to "go fly a kite" on the Mall!! A friend and I went down and walked the Mall and the area around the Washington Monument. Lots of smiles, laughter, and most of all...KITES! Everyone had one, everyone desperately wanted the kites to fly even without a lot of wind, so lots of running and yelling and encouraging and "TRY AGAIN!"
There were some kites that were "professional" but most were store bought. And they flew quite well and got just as many laughs and crashes. It was a good day. The sun was a bit bright and the walk was a bit long...but I had fun!
