Fly: A Kite in Hermann Park

Before the hurricane, I decided to take up a mellow hobby that involved going outside. Kite flying came to mind after reading Limor Fried's instructions for Single Use Digital Cameras for KAP [Kite Aerial Photography].

I had never flown a kite before, so down to Galveston to
Kites Unlimited. Remember that I bought the kite and flew it before the hurricane, so I don't know if Kites Unlimited is still open or what Hermann Park looks like. The store clerk there was very helpful, and a test flight at a nearby beach proved successful.

Galveston is windier than Houston, so flying in Houston would be more challenging. As you can see in the video below, I did get off the ground. Overall, a good time.
