Arrived in Long Beach, Wa safe & sound after 21 hours in the saddle. Took the scenic route up the Oregon Coast and stopped into Gomberg's NW Kite's in the Lincoln City Outlet Center. The Washington State International Kite Festival starts here in Long Beach tomorrow with Trains & Arches.
7 days of kite flying, good friends and Long Beach. If we get into taking pictures this year (And I think Rhonda plans to) I'll try to get some uploaded to share.
To start, the view from the Penthouse, our home away from home. By tomorrow the sky on the right of this picture, over the trees and the large house will be filled with kites, many of them thanks to our good friends Team Suspended Animation
, check them out on Facebook, anybody who needs a 4x4 Ford F350 Dually Crew Cab and a 24' trailer to go to a kite show is a Serious
kite flier, and these guys roll in with 3 or more rigs. You only thought your bag was full.
Thanks so much to our friends who help make this possible for us, we'll get you up here again one day, one way or another. We're off to explore the Peninsula for the 100th time, it never gets old.
