When I arrived, Simon already had his single colour manta ray aloft, lifting his penguin, and I soon joined him with my patchwork ray. I did manage to dangle a trilobite from the line, but it struggled in the light breeze. Peter also joined us with his AF ray and a fauchi. Meanwhile Mike, Janet, Janet and Barry kept up their end of the bargain flying stick kites. And Janet (which one?) kept the inner man satisfied with sausage rolls and doughnuts - yummy.

Looking out to sea, we could see the ferries coming in and out of Dover. And we could just about make out Calias harbour with a pair of binoculars. The coast of France was clear in the sunshine and looked very welcoming. Of course, the days are much shorter now, and by about 3.30 the sun starts to drop. soon enough we were treated to a lovely sunset and looking out over the channel the full moon slowly climbed over the horizon. Thanks to all the passers by who came and chatted.

Next week we are lighting up the sky at Woodchurch. We're not sure whether it will be Saturday or Sunday at the moment, it is very weather dependant.
