CERVIA INTERNATIONAL KITE FESTIVAL

We flew to Italy to participate in two kite festivals at the beaches of the northern Adriatic shores. Kite friends from all over the world attended with perfect winds, warm sunny days and lots and lots of flying colors. The 28th annual Cervia International Kite festival is one of the longest running kite festivals in Europe. The festival ran for ten days, two weekends and powered by pasta and vino. We then went to another smaller festival in the beach town of Rosolina Mare near Venice to get more sun, wind and kites into the air. We love Italy!

Your kites look absolutely fantastic amongst that lovely Italian sun. I hope you enjoyed Cervia as much as Natalie and I do. It revives me and I am really sorry we were not there this year to spend some time with you guys.

Hopefully we can have dinner there together next year.

Love

Natalie and Paul
