Yesterday was my birthday!
I’m not one for parties or big celebrations anyway, but it was an extra-quiet birthday this year with everyone self-isolating and social distancing…
My love was off work for the day so we took a drive up to the Northumberland Strait (still mostly frozen) to Cape Jourimain so I could launch my little cloud kite for the first time.
I received this beautiful and functional handmade work of art near Christmas, but struggled to get the motivation to try it out over the winter.
When I discovered that the first day of spring would fall on my birthday this year, I decided this was the perfect opportunity to try something new.
The day dawned with no wind (pretty unusual around these parts), but there was a bit of a breeze when we set out and I felt optimistic that there would be enough, and it was.
What a joy!
I look forward to taking this beauty out for many more flights this spring and summer. Kite flying just might be the perfect antidote to feeling cooped up and isolated.
