A couple of weeks ago I went out to Cali for the Berkeley Kite Festival. I was told that Berkeley had a lot of dirty hippies, I never saw any though. To me Berkeley is a very young hip sort of place but not trendy, more laid back. A bunch college type folks there too.
Anyway, the local Californicators showed me a great time and made me feel rather at home. They even got me to compete in a dual line kite ballet competition... AND I WON! Anyway, here are a few photos and a link to the slideshow if you prefer.
Some eyes in the sky.
Going with the flow.
Lots of people were there.
This is the kids kite making area.
Spectators bring some serious equipment to this place. They get a nice view too.
A Therapy dog was even flying a kite.
Some Tsunami relief volunteers from Japan were there too.
Ok, so then I found out this place is a giant landfill. That stack in the background is a methane vent. You can see the gas escaping from just the right angle.
Our kite parking lot. The girl was taking video of the festival with a spensive camera in that bag.
Here is the full slideshow if ya wanna see it.
That's all I got.
