K/ Alphabe-Thursday

 Go fly a KITE!

When you think of playing outdoors in winter, you probably don't think of kites. But quite a few people were flying kites on the frozen ice over Cook's Bay last Sunday afternoon.

Practicing the art of KITE flying

Out on the bay you don't have to worry about your kite getting caught in tree limbs. And a few kite flyers were wearing short skis or snowboards and were enjoying a ride courtesy of the wind.

Colourful kites against a light background. Very nice indeed!

Is the location Lake Simcoe?

This would be fun to see. Though it would be best seeing it from the inside with a fire blazing . . . )

I'll watch from the shore, thank you very much! Just thinking about walking on ice after such a mild January gives me the shivers! OK, I'm a chicken, I know!

Oh my grands would LOVE this! Too many high lines& trees around here.

Michelle said...

It would take a lot of convincing to get me to go out on frozen ice, but flying a kite and getting a ride from it does sound like fun.

Yes, I would not have thought of kite flying as something to do in winter, but why not? Your nice shots show it's great fun even on ice!

Naturegirl said...

Great winter fun! I suppose you just make the best of the weather..but I just can't seem to appreciate the cold snowy winters..prefer sunshine and blue skies of Arizona.
a snow bird taking in the sunshine!

Ann said...

right now, in NZ, they do kite flying on the beach.

Sandy said...

Amazing photos of those playing on the ice with their kites!
I'm in sunny florida and people are doing the same, but on the hot beach!
Nice post

going for a ride on the wind sounds like lots of fun. I've always like kites, but haven't flown a lot... {:-Deb

Makes me think of the wind surfers I see out on the lakes around here. Think I'd try it with a pair of ice skates on:)
