kite-flying and popularity

Standard

i am going with Anna to a party on Ile Ste Helene Sunday. What i really want to do this week-end is fly a kite. I will be popular at said party if i have a kite to fly. I don’t fill out a bikini as well as Anna, so i will need some ploy to not be stuck in her shadow (LOL). Where can i buy a kite in Montreal?

I have always wanted to fly a kite. I have never been successful. As a kid i would patiently try to make them myself from construction paper and straws with toilet paper tails. We bought one from a Walmart, Kmart or Ames every vacation i can remember, yet they never flew. I want to add this to my summer to-do list and then cross it off! i want to be a kite-flyer. Is anyone interested?

  1. Wow, I think the last time that I flew a kite was when I was around 7 or 8 years old in the Philippines. I remember we used to have home-made ones made with newspaper, bamboo and glue. They flew, but not too high. And they always got stuck in trees.

    I haven’t flown one since then so I wouldn’t really know where to buy a good one. I always see some at Wal-mart, but I never tried them out. If anything you could always try to build your own.

    They have some nice kites, some cheap, some expensive. They have some that’ll really soar.
    If you go to Ile Ste-Helene, there are some good spots to fly, but I don’t suppose it’s easy to do in a crowd.
