Greetings from Sweden, Agneta
Fabulous stuff, Amelia :-) The tails in the sky all lined up by the wind add great effect...

Good morning Beara. Thanks Clive - yes the kites and tails captured all the colours of both the UK and Norway! It was an enjoyable family day out. Saturday was spent making kites, and Sunday - flying them. They ranged from fairly complex stuff to a supermarket bag attached to a length of string at the end of a stick! Some kite owners lost their kites completely in the strong winds, and maybe there were a few tears - but I don't think so!
A little late to congratulate but still so cool. So I understood there was a party going on in Norway too for your Queen.
Good morning Roland and thank you. The day was perfect for kite flying, but rather cold.
Thank you Agneta. Some of the kites were quite professional, but many had been made by children the previous day. It was exciting to see them all flying!
Beste hilsener til Sverige, Amelia
Good morning Steve, at this point in time I wanted a kite and not a camera! It was a great day with a strong on-shore wind, to be enjoyed by young and old alike.
Many thanks Hubs. It may give the impression of summer with the bright skies, but there was a cold wind blowing in from the sea. ;-)
thank you so much François for your Y*. You are very kind. When the sun shines in Norway, the colours are always saturated like this.
There was a party going on here at Hellestø Erik, but I rather suspect that no-one except Adrian and I knew that it was the diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. This is an annual kite festival, and great fun was had by all. We watched the Thames river procession when we got back to our apartment.
Nicely seen Amelia and a good sunny day nice image Like, and here in the west coast we have had very little rain and lots of sunshine unlike our southern cousins long may it last
Found and Voted very nice image
