Every Sunday in San Juan, the locals gather on the big lawn that stretches down the hill from the ponderous old fort, El Morro. They buy cheap Gayla plastic kites from vendors who set up booths on the street. When I was there, there were at least 100 kites in the air at once.
This little girl was much more interested in bouncing her kite along the ground than flying it.
Found this on Flickr. Let's go to San Juan.
We'll head out early as usual, because they are saying rain later, but we all know weather.com is full of shit anyway, so it's probably going to be beautiful and warm. But the ground will probably be wet, so prepare for that however you think you should. As Jeremy points out, the good thing about the wet ground is that our park will be less crowded with other jerks grabbing our spools, and getting in the way of squidgie discs.
See you there.

Another perfect day in the park. We got there around 10am, and the temperature quickly approached 80 degrees Fahrenheit. The winds were a little weak and inconsistent at first, and we had a lot of knotted lines, but we refused to surrender, and the winds finally picked up and the kites flew high. There were a lot of other kite-flyers in the park too, which is always excellent. There was also a gigantic American flag. We spent about 5 hours out there, and have the sunburns to prove it.
After the kite-flying we retreated to the recuperative shade and drinks of Ye Olde Carriage Inn, along with some fries and Erotic Photo Hunt.

Then it was off to Ye Olde Carriage in for Guinness and Erotic Photo Hunt. It doesn't get any better than this, folks.

We've already had some great days at the park flying kites. I must say we're Gayla fans. "The kite that flies" is right. I lost 4 kites in three days. Jeremy and I tracked the line to one through the tree tops until the fence for the Botanical Gardens. We're pretty sure that Baby Bat landed on the other side of the garden-it was out on about 2000' of line-but I guess we'll never know. Jeremy and I were also out there at 9:30 am last friday amidst snow flurries. It was amazing.
I've got a Flickr Set up of our exploits, there's a bunch more photos there:
