Flying a kite

June 15, 2024 — ~marmar22

It’s been a while since my family decided to go to the beach. We brought a few kites with us (one standard kite and another resembling a bird). The bird kite is difficult to control as it has a tendency to lean to the right before falling from the sky. There is a way to balance it, by releasing the string for a while and reeling it back in (that kite uses a fishing rod for some reason). I could sustain that for around half an hour before my hands started aching from the constant reeling.

Despite that, it feels a bit refreshing to be inhaling the salty sea breeze while doing that repetitive, needless action. Perhaps I should be more willing to go to vacation instead of staying in the house doing nothing.
