An update on the 101 in 1001 list:
005 – Fly a kite.
Actually, last weekend we went on a kite hunt again. We didn’t really have any plans, so we hopped onto a bus headed for Potrero Hill. Ran into Neil at Coffee Bar, so we hung out for a bit. Afterwards, we checked the Sports Basement over in Potrero Hill, only to find kites in the $50-$60 range. Yeah, not so much. We also checked Sports Authority, which wasn’t too far of a stroll away. No luck there either.
So I hadn’t really thought of finding a kite this weekend. Of course, when RV and I were strolling around Japantown today after a hefty brunch of fried chicken and biscuits smothered in gravy, not expecting to really find anything, VOILA! This funny-looking kite caught our eyes. Meet the Power Pony Penta Kite! It’s a little on the ridiculous side, which is why it’s perfect. We’ve yet to fly it though because as soon as we made it back to the car, the clouds rolled in, and it began to sprinkle.
More updates when we actually get this sucker up in the air! I am beyond ecstatic that we found it. It was marked as $20.99, but when the guy rang it up, it was actually $18.99. SUH-WEET! Not sure when the next sunny, but windy enough, weekend will be…
