"Don't be such a crab!" (Cancer is the crab in the zodiac) by 

I’m married to a “crab”…….the Cancer sign in the zodiac, that is.

Kite flying at Brandt Point State Park in Newport, RI brings out very unusual kites. This crab kite is only one of many.

The constant wind off Newport harbor can be relied upon to send these wonderful kites aloft.

I am deeply concerned about environment, wildlife, and animal welfare, feeling a strong commitment to leaving the planet in better shape for new generations. Therefore, I support a number of charities that reflect those interests.

I have a degree in English and Library Science, but if I had my life to live over, I would have loved to have been a photographer, writer, and/or National Park ranger.

  • Thanks, Judy. If you ever drove out to Newport on Ocean Drive, you would have witnessed all these kite enthisiasts.

    It would be a sight to see all kinds of kites in the air. We get a lot of wind here on the prairies, but kite-flying seems to be a lost art here.

  • Thank you, Kratos. This really is a fun place to go to watch the kire flying.
