The Ten Pence Kite

Our picture prompt:

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a pavilion with people flying kites around it.
Hubby and I made a kite once. Nothing fancy, just a cross frame using two piece of a bean cane, a pedal bin liner, some sellotape, string, and paper bows made from kitchen roll.
Total cost ten pence.

I probably have a picture of it somewhere, and remember us taking it out for its maiden flight not expecting it to do very much.
We were stunned when it soared high into the sky and stayed there for ages as Hubby made it duck and dive, giving the more expensive shop bought designer kites a run for the money. It was fun to make and fun to fly. Shame it crash landed, but it was in style!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Oh wow. What a great idea. I’d never thought of making a kite, but it sounds so straightforward. Thank you so much for this lovely entry to #writephoto. KL ❤
