SkyWatch Friday - Chasing the dragon

'chasing the dragon but never catching it (like "chasing after the wind [a wild wind])' ~ Wikipedia



All the 'on trend' tents (and camper vans) at the Cambridge Festival had poles with kites adorning them. The 2007 model loved the dragon kites but never managed to get his hands on one.

I have been very lax with my blogging of late (despite ba bags reminders) so I've got a back log of SkyWatch photos that I've had problems whittling down, bear with me as here are some others from the same campervan get away (full report later - promise bags x)
See the tiny dots that aren't pebbles? That's us having a picnic after having a swim on the Suffolk coast.

Shortly after the beach - British summers?!

Go and see some real summer skies from somewhere else around the world at SkyWatch Friday

  2. Love the kites! And the dragon in the sky! How perfect! The grumpy gray, rainy skies look all to familiar! Terrific captures! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Lovely kites - I'm sure anyone would love one, no matter their age. British summers can be trying but look at the variety of skies we can get :-)
