A great day to get your feet wet.
Where the kites are: South of the New Brighton Beach pier.
Preparing the eagle.
The team from Peter Lynn Kites of Ashburton raise their mighty space racer.
Beached As Bro!
Oblivious to the big blue bear.
Kate with ladybird.
The animals aloft.
The amazing creations of Peter Lynn Kites.
The fault lines are close by, with a magnitude 4+ shake centered a few kilometres offshore later in the afternoon, but the weather's just fine for kites.
