The phone rang, I pick it up
"Shyloooo????" An old person, maybe a grandmother says from the other end.
"Nooo???" I answer.
"OK, wrong number."
Oh man, I have to tell Shylo someone called. I knock on her door and wake her up
Jay has this awesome power kite that you can fly really fast and high. It's about 2 or 3 metres across. It literally carries you across the beach.
We drive down to the beach and bring Scooter with us. Shylo shows me what to do and I try and fly the kite myself too. It doesn't go too well. I slam it into the ground a million times.
A wakeboarder gets in the way with her machine that pulls her up onto shore by a rope. Another power kiter warned me of this lady before I got taken down by the taught rope. Good thing, because I had no idea what that contraption was for.
I try and maneuver the kite, but I can't really figure it out. I almost hit some kids on the beach, and then dump the kite right into the water, where it then picks up a bunch of clumps of sand and can no longer fly. The tide starts to come in so we go back home.
Shylo has to dry out the kite, so we do that and wait for Jay to come home.
