Klig's Kites

I always visit the kite shop on our family's vacation. Those close to me know that I love to fly kites. (Well, now everyone knows).

The walls and ceiling in Klig's are covered with kites; adult kites as well as children's kites. I bought a six foot wide delta kite, some are 10 feet wide.
This is me flying my kite at the beach.
More ABC on the side bar.....

Oh, what fun summer shots, Carol! And I love kites, too. It's fun to go down to the harbor here in Seattle and see people out on the water flying kites! Fun post for the K day!

Have a good day, whatever letter!

How bright and cheerful. What a great way to greet the Fall as I gaze on these friendly and easy-going photos. Is that YOU on the beach all smiling and happy?

Deb said...

great kites...something so freeing about watching a kite soar...

Wonderful! How nice to have a dedicated kite store. I love kites - just can't fly them!

Beautiful colours. We have many kites here due to the wind.

You look like an expert kite flier!
Beautiful shot of you on the beach.

I love the bright colours on that kite. You must be good at getting kites into the air. I need lessons. ;-)

That last photo is just fantastic. It could have been such a boring photo, but that kite (and you of course) make it superb!

Joy said...

How lovely a whole shop full of kites, and so difficult to choose which one. Looks like you have made a good choice on a beautiful day at the beach.

Anna said...

Love that picture!! You look so carefree! Oh, to be at the beach... will you buy a new kite next year or fly the same one??

I never was good a flying kites but I love to watch them, I love the colors and the variety.

Fantastic kite flying weather...some colorful shots too. I'm surprised I haven't seen more kites for this letter.

Oh, what fun! The beach is the perfect place for kite flying. The colors and shapes are fascinating...

That looks like such fun! And it's a beautiful kite, too. :D

Kites always appeal to one's imagination. I read the "Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini. The kite is the the beginning and the end of a relationship of two friends. Your kite is very beautiful! Thanks for your visit!

Love that middle picture. And the bottom one is really impressive when expanded.

So it's come to this... said...

I know the very shop! I go there every year too. I'm not a very talented flyer though :( Nice picture on the beach. Looks like you had the place to yourself.

Rose said...

Those are beautiful kites! I haven't flown a kite in oh so long; this looks like so much fun, Carol.

Jay said...

Oh, goodness, what a gorgeous beach!! The kite in the sky puts the finishing touch to that scene.

Jama said...

I must ask; is that Cape Hatteras or Myrtle Beach?
