It looks like I will probably be free on Sunday afternoon. Busse?


Sunday. Busse. I'll be there about noon thirty.

(And bring that bacon. ;) )

Re: Route 66 Kites Fun Fly

Three silly time-lapse videos from yesterday. No music, no post processing. Straight from the GoPro H5 in-camera time-lapse processor. Cloudy morning. https://youtu.be/CPogC6F9Cfw Display kites and mid-day clearing skies. https://youtu.be/G0oF3yolvp0 Afternoon https://youtu.be/p-izTzkTnhA Bill

Re: Route 66 Kites Fun Fly

Had a great time yesterday in spite of the gloomy morning weather. Winds were about 18 mph most of the day and gusting higher. A few batches of photos.

Thanks. Looking good.
I put my vote in for the same location as last year. The more western portion of the beach.

P.S. -- @BasicBill, make mental note: five second interval is perfect for cloud movement in 11-13mph wind. Watch the video again, but only watch the clouds. Perfection.


Yes, I used those same settings a few weeks ago when a storm came through. Thanks.
