Last weekend, I brought my children to Batu Burok beach, which is the nearest beach to my house. It has been almost a year since I last brought them for kite flying at the beach. Padahal the beach is only about ten minutes drive from my house! My children are always so excited about going to the beach and always begged me to take them for kite flying. Maknya je yang tak excited. Of course I love to be at the beach too but the truth is I am really scared of getting sunburn. The weather is really warm and dry here in Terengganu. Sayang kulit la konon.... That is why I seldom go to the beach. Kalau pegi pun dah petang around 6 o'clock.
As usual...everytime we go to Batu Buruk beach, my children would ask for new kites. I think they already have about a dozen of them. I remember when I was my children’s age I used to make my own kites from newspapers je. Making kites was so much fun back then . However, nowadays you can easily find ready made kites and kite flying is not as popular as it was before.
My son bought the Shark Kite
It’s actually so easy to fly a kite at the beach. Just let the kite go and with the help of the strong ocean breeze, it would soar up high into the sky easily. No wonder kite flying is so popular in the east coast especially at the coastal areas. It’s really exciting watching the colourful kites flutter in the wind !
Looks like a real bird!
My daughter finally got very tired and it was time to go home...
The last pose before we went home..
Kite flying is certainly a fun activity for children and is really a great way to spend time at the beach.
