And within a matter of minutes, people came out of other cottages, shook out kites of their own, and our sky was filled with colours.
What wonderful fun! The breeze coming in over the lake was perfect, and the huge open lawn meant that the "kite eating trees" could be easily kept on a leash.
There is something about a kite that just makes us smile.
