Kite Flying on West Kirby Beach

At this time of year the late afternoons are simply stunning on the Wirral Peninsula. The skies are amazing and the colours are beautiful. We had just got back from a weekend at Carden Park so didn’t want to drive too far togo a fly the girls new kite.

As we left our house we didn’t wonder whether it was going to be windy enough but the beach never disappoints! We pulled up at the top of the hill and the view (as it often does) took my breath away.

    Oh, flying a kite is the best! I can’t wait for my bean to be big enough to run around the beach with a kite. I’ll be singing ‘Lets go fly a kite’ all day now :-) (linking up with #pointshoot)

    Karen what gorgeous photos. We have only visited West Kirby once about 4 years ago and we keep saying we should go back. We tried to find New Brighton the other Sunday but got lost and ended up coming home (don’t ask lol) x

    Gorgeous photos, Karen. I love heading to the beach with the boys. It’s always so much fun, helped by perfectly blue skies :)

    There’s nothing better than spending an autumnal day on the beach enjoying the views and flying a kite. The girls look like they’re having a great time watching the kite in the air and catching it as it comes down. It looks like you picked the right activity and everyone had a great time. Thanks for linking up with me on Country Kids.
