Go Fly A Kite

Finally able to get my "stuff" together to rejoin on of our Airstream Rallies.  We haven't been out in the trailer since the New Year's rally.  Been too busy at work or dealing with the in-law's issues.  My brother is hosting a rally down south in Galveston (about an hour south of here) for the weekend.  I figured that I didn't have any more good excuses NOT to attend so I signed us up.  This rally is in a campground near the beach and the theme is kite flying.  Another storm front blew through yesterday and the temps dipped back down to the 40's but the weekend is looking to be dry and warm.  Now I finally get to test out my skylight repair.

I plan on taking the dogs down for their first beach experience.  We live about an hour from the gulf and I have never taken any of the dogs to the shore so I am curious to see what their reaction will be.  Both are not real swimmers, so I am sure they won't know how to handle waves.  Hope to post pictures if they cooperate.

I am sure you are all in for a great time.

Do you have a kite or will you have to buy one? Maybe there is simewhere that you could get some done with the dogs faces on them!

Actually bought one last month, but down in Galveston, they have several stores/vendors that sell nothing but kites. Anything from the plain old paper kite to some fancy high tech kites that can do some amazing aerobatics. I haven't flown a kite in years. Should be interesting.

You had me at "campground near the beach".

I'm so happy you signed up to go! You deserve the chance to get away from things for a while. And I'm sure you've been itchin' to take the Airstream out on the road!
We'll take ANY pictures of your dogs, by the way - cooperative or otherwise.

You need the break. I'm glad you found a chance to get away and relax a bit. The beach sound wonderful. I hope the weather stays cooperative. Can't wait to see pictures.
