Go Fly a Kite

Veterans Day Fall Fly Kite Festival

November - my favorite month of the year. The weather is cooler and drier, and there seems to be at least one festival or fair (sometimes three or four) every weekend. Ron had to work on Saturday but I took advantage of the sunny, breezy weather and drove down to Treasure Island Beach for the Veterans Day Fall Fly Kite Festival. It was a perfect day for kite-flying. I got to see a couple of the show kites being launched, which was very cool. Several spectators brought their own kites or purchased one from the small kite shop set up by the sponsors. The sweetest was a dad showing his little boy how to fly. What a glorious day to be at the beach!

  1. What a beautiful day! What beautiful kites! November in Florida is definitely one of the perks of living there! Quite different from November most other places. I had no idea November was your favorite month, Susan. I guess May, September, December and maybe June are my favorites...maybe October which seems to be one of the busiest.

    1. April and May are also my favorites, maybe because that's when we usually go on vacation. :-) Also, April, May and November are the least rainy months in Florida. I don't think I could live where it rained all the time.
