The Morecambe (Catch the Wind) Kite Festival is one of those utterly charming seaside events that remind you of being a kid. Sun, sea, sand, kites and ice creams. What more could a boy want?
Strangely enough, the answer it seems is staying indoors with an x-box! No amount of persuasion or bribery could make my two boys join a family day out, despite the aforementioned delights, so Carol and I instead had a lovely afternoon on our own, walking the Heysham to Morecambe promenade and enjoying the kites without the kids!
