Look to the Skies…

Lift your spirits ‘Beyond the Blue’!


This is exactly what Nemo was doing at the 20th annual International Kite Festival held at Zandvlei park overlooking the majestic Muizenberg Mountains and a stones throw away from the beach.

A few months ago I went to a kite making workshop in our community hosted by the Cape Mental Health, got an envelope with tickets to the kite festival…a few days ago I decided to invite a friend to join me thinking it was 2 tickets only to open the envelope and realised it is for one child only hahahaha talk about an epic fail.

This did not deter us from still going and it was a pleasent experience, I took the kite I made in the hope of giving it to a kid, after 3 failed attempts one child finally accepted my gesture probably feeling sorry for me at my somewhat failed attempt at flying the kite 😀 – I realised Kite flying is an art and with the Muizenberg wind this is no easy feat especially if this is the kite you trying to fly….


…haha jus kidding I have no idea how to teach a dragon but this was one of the many international kites on display.

Besides the kites there were food stalls and Kite making workshops, free prizes and foodstalls to keep everyone entertained with Stand up comedian Wayne Mckay gooing some jokes in the mix, wat is die kaap sonne ‘n bietjie lag 😀


All the proceeds are contributed to a good cause by the Cape Mental Health Society – This is truly a fun filled family outing hou net jou hare vas want dit gaan beslis uit perm uit waai 😀
