Out and About: International Kite Festival

We spent weeks planning our visit to the International  Kite Festival.  With boys in the family that love anything that flies, this was the event of the season.  As we came over Boyes drive from Kalk Bay this is what we saw, you can imagine how excited the boys were to get out the car at this point. 

It took us a good 20 minutes to find parking and after a rather inebriated car guard welcomed us to the festival we headed off to see the kites up close.

 This scuba diver was frighteningly real.  His legs and arms were moving as though he were swimming towards us and I kept imagining someone looking at me through his goggles.

These dragons were definitely one of my favourites, though something about the pink one just jarred at my colour senses but they reminded me so much of the little dragon in Mulan.  They were so big you felt like they
might swoop down at you and have you for lunch.

 This reminded me so much of Empangeni. This is about the only place you see gecko's in theWestern Cape.  Definitely not something I miss - though they are so good with getting rid of pesky mosquito's they really are not the greatest when it comes to finding a toilet.

We all spent loads of time staring up at the sky, our necks were all a little tender the next day:)
 Of course there's always some time for a quick cuddle too.  There's always time for that.
