If you haven’t had the pleasure of visiting Long Beach in Washington state – I would highly recommend it. Not only is Long Beach a really long beach (it’s true!), but it is also home to the World Kite Museum and Hall of Fame. I had no idea that kites were held in such high regard. Even if you don’t have a talent for keeping a colourful (I am Canadian … the “u” is mandatory) swatch of nylon aloft in the sky – I suspect you will appreciate watching their loosely choreographed dances.
