Flying Kites

Believe it or not it there is usually wind blowing where they build windmill farms. For some reason they have figured out where to place the windmills to catch the wind no matter what direction it blows. This should have been a clue to us that perhaps the wind does change direction. We of course decided that since we had ridden into a head wind going one direction on a road that if we reversed the direction another day we would have a tail wind the whole way. Someone forgot to mention this to the wind! Maybe, he just wanted to prove to us how strong or wrong we were and he kicked it up a notch for our final day. If we were flying a kite it would have gone very high, might have snapped the string even! Instead sails were set to harness the power of the wind and destinations were arrived at, both internal and external.


Two days ago the wind had the bushes pushed the other way!
