 13th International Kite festival  20 - 21 October 2007

Cape Mental Health the convenors of the festival, changed the dates to October this year to try for better wind conditions. Saturday was perfect and Sunday was OK. 

We shared our tent with the Greater Zandvlei Estuary Nature Reserve. Their display was the attention grabber everyone wanted to see the bokkie and the terrapin and the snake and the duck.
