Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Although the first couple of days...the weather was magical...gentle breezes and lots of sun----------------OPPS!
Awoke on Wed. morn with a storm front coming ashore and played with my vented high wind kites until the SHEEEEETS OF RAIN and gusts to over 40 mph!!!!  Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked Cry

Spent the rest of the week...going through Art Galleries and Nikity nak shops and driving the Oregon Coast Hi Way.
At last...Friday morning the wind had stopped DEAD...except for the relentless rain.
Took my 4 ounce 3/4 Goodwind Flashlight and proceeded to get both of us totally soppin-wet until about 10:a.m.

Packed up all our crap n' and headed for Gig Haaaba n' home.
Here are a few shots from the week.

Still bottom line:
HEY, HEY!!! Any day at the beach...still is a GOOD DAY.
