A sunny, Saturday, autumn afternoon in Leamington – and kites. The wind is a little patchy – but there is plenty to watch. From the big and bold to the subtle – the almost not there, the slick to the aerodynamically challenged. The 2011 Kite Days have been the initiative of the Waipa District Council folk – the ones in the blue tshirts. I particularly like this idea and the other almost lighter than air string affair featured in the day gallery.
