The forecast was for reasonable off-shore breeze and dry weather. The ground was covered in a heavy dew and initial attempts to launch kites were unsuccessful as the wind had not arrived. Several sopping wet kites were left dangling in the hope that they might dry out. But before too long Peter's manta ray was in the sky in the steady breeze, soon to be followed by Simon's smiley face. Before too long they started to argue and both ended up back on the ground. The ray was put away to re-appear later, and the smiley dominated the sky for the rest of the day.

The breeze never really arrived, and was up and down all day, which meant that kites were never too reliably nailed to the sky and had to be watched and relaunched frequently. But between us we managed to keep the sky full for most of the day. Meanwhile we had been joined by Martin's two daughters, their partners and children, and it was wonderful to see one of Martin's grandchildren happily flying her kite.

We finished at about 5 pm to make the drive back to Kent.
