Kite flying is dangerous!
The last rays and warmth of sunshine are still, only just clinging on. Last year at the mighty fine Eggardon Kite Festival there were storms and so much wind it was cancelled. The year before that no wind at all.......this year was just right. Perfect in fact. A warm wind and sunshine.
The atmosphere at this small and eagerly awaited local event is one of chilled out pleasantness. A great way to idle a day by flying your favourite kite on a site of antiquity overlooking the Jurassic Coast with the sound of distant bagpipes over the ramparts.
Be careful though, I am told kite flying can be dangerous!
