Within walking distance from the stable there are several large fields. You cannot fly there in the spring or in the summer. However, now the fields are harvested and offer some really good places to fly.
Yesterday I was doing some work in the stable and had an hour or so of doing nothing before I was to take the horses inside for the night. And guess what…! I had a few kites in my car! So I went over to one of the fields, grabbed two Rokkakus and some flying line and soon the kites flew steadily up there!
With only a short hour or so to sunset, the sun was already nearing the horizon and painted the land with its golden rays. The sky wasn’t all deep blue. A few clouds scattered up there spiced up the sky as made for some good video scenes in addition to the Rokkakus.
Some times people ask me why I fly kites. Well, I guess you can find an answer or two to that question in this video!
