Kites can really go

I was able to do one of my favorite things this week. Fly a kite. Considering my current employment condition I should have been flying more. Mary likes to photograph clouds so we both got to do our thing.I really like stunt kites which give you total control, you can even fly the kite down or do loops.
Here I am flying horizontal. Please play close attention to Mary's clouds.

Trying to gain altitude after flying close to the ground. The following video gives you a quick view of flying. The wind was light so it limited the speed and performance.
