We love kite flying at this time of year. The late afternoons are simply stunning on the Wirral Peninsula – the skies are amazing and the colours are beautiful. So I was a little sad to read that outdoor hobbies and skills are being lost because families can’t afford (or don’t know how) to leisure like they used to, according to a recent study by Visit No rth Norfolk.
- 64% of adults have never moored a boat (I have to say we haven’t either though!)
- 42% have never flown a kite (a bi-weekly activity here)
- 51% have never gone crabbing (We love this, and have some great memories of doing this near Abersoch!)
- 48% have never navigated using a compass (this is actually on our list for the Summer and we are hoping to use Treasure Trails when we go to stay at Tattershall Lakes.
