Kite flying on Padre Island


This weekend there was a kite flying demo on Padre Island.  Never thought too much about kite flying, couldn’t see how they could put on a show.  But once I got there I was quite impressed.  I put a short video on my Apple account, enter this in your browser:

In addition to the flying, there were some very impressive kites on display.  Check out the following:

Many kites

There were all linds of kites in the air -- and on the ground.

Strange shapes

Some kites were whimsical, such as this "half woman"

Many shapes

All kinds of shapes, all kinds of motions

Shark kite

The shark kite stole the show

The shark kite was huge, with surf, a number of “fish” swimming below it, and two “sharks” following along.  Quite impressive….
