One way to salvage a cold windy picnic for the kids is to produce a kite that flies like a dizzy swallow all hopped up on Red Bull and turn them loose! My friend Jared produced just such a kite and several kids miraculously and immediately forgot all about the cold for the better part of an hour!
This kid nearly joined the kite in the wind coming of Long Island Sound.
The kite just flew tight dive-bombing corkscrews at random
It'll be right back for...
...another strafing run
Lean into it, or fly with it!
This pass leaves little smiling bodies strewn about the Harkness Park lawn
Smile at the wind
