The funny thing about this bucket item is that 2 of my closest friends, Trish and Janice, have independently gifted me kites to accomplish this task. Even more coincidentally, both kites were shaped like bulldogs, a nod to my obsession with my own English bulldog Lucy. Even with both kites in my possession, it has taken me forever to actually complete this goal. The perfect occasion to finally put my kites to use arose at the end of February, when we threw a surprise picnic engagement party for our good friends Tim and Adriane at Crissy Field.
The prevalence of wind is exactly what makes Crissy Field such an ideal place to fly a kite, hence the bucket list directive. Of course, this perfect February day was the first time any of us had seen Crissy Field without wind - making our task just that much harder. But we did not let ourselves be dissuaded!*
