Well we had a lovely Easter weekend - the weather was fab and because of that we decided to go to the 21st Festival de cerf-volant et du vent "Kite Festival" which is held for three days over Easter at Chatelaillon-Plage. On arriving at the beach we did wonder how they were going to be flying kites or any kind of demonstration that needed wind come to that, as the sea was like a millpond! It was beautiful the shades of blue just hit the eyes and everything looked stunning!
From sand carving to an air display from l'arme d'air it was a fab day!
|Sand Art so clever!|
|Just about late morning - so very quiet everywhere!|
|upcycling? the new way for plastic bottles!|
|All those old bottle tops and cd's have a purpose!|
|Light and delicious!|
|Looking back to the Poppies!|
We then found a very nice spot to sit and wait for the next display - that of the Champion of last year's stunt flying competition.
|one for our garden!|
