A windy day in paradise


When the wind gets up here, the kite surfers suddenly descend on the beach. I wonder if they’ve called in to the office sick, saying they’ve got wind. πŸ™‚

  1. Ha! I love the “got wind” joke :-). Although I don’t think there’s any point in me trying that one. “It’s never stopped you before” will be the likely reply.

  2. HEHEHEHEHE! You are so funny. There are times I SHOULD HAVE called in sick with wind! But don’t tell anyone it was me! πŸ™‚ Love SBD

  3. This entry is too cute! The kite-surfers are most ardent and there is quite a plethora of them here. Lovely photo!

    It makes it a bit apprehensive sometimes when one is out swimming the surf busily kissing sharks, when suddenly a great hooting hulk attached to a board with a massive rainbow bloatie kite thing bobbing behind him descends from the heavens and nearly sails onto one’s head and then skates right onto the wee toothy mouths of poor unsuspecting sharkies nibbling the surface of the sea for some tasty wee sardines. Har har, it is Quite fun to watch those aerobatic maneuvers the flying-kite-individuals make to avoid these such collisions πŸ˜‰

    Beautiful fun. Have a groovy weekend,

    • Thanks so much for liking my photo. πŸ™‚ Happily we have shark nets here, so no chance of nibblies. The kite surfers are fascinating to watch, and I’ve never seen any collisions.

      • Haha, no no I’ve never seen any collisions (or orechestrated, I mean, been part of one), either. The tremendous skill and energy that goes into the sport is astounding, and how absolutely beautiful they look- an aerial ballet, surfing the wind. Love it, beautiful post. As always. Grins,

  4. Wind, surf, sky and sunshine. Have I told you yet that I can fly. The problem is that I mislaid my wings and can’t find them.

    “Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
    ― Leonardo da Vinci

  5. A friend of mine owns a kite boarding shop but I never tried it. It’s a lot harder then it looks I know and it looks hard to begin with.

  6. I love the feeling of freedom , the most beautiful is that adrenaline , often many times I’ve tasted that wonderful feeling of bird’s eye view – I have to admit. beautiful . Have a nice day

  7. One of my coworkers called out sick once claiming his cat was suicidal and that his window was broken and he was afraid that his cat would jump to her death. You know, he kept his job.

  8. I agree with Sonel… there must be some real good excuses that get made to bosses… love the suffering from wind one…

  9. Whahahahaha! I can just hear those excuses… πŸ˜†
    Great shot AD and thanks for sharing hon. πŸ˜€ *hugs*
