Annual Kite Flying Contest
Sunday was the 33rd (i think) annual kite flying contest here on Bonaire. There was quite a crowd out enjoying the festivities and great weather. The competition was highly organized and the judges were actively involved in the proceedings.
These guys were holding on for dear life to a rather large kite. Eventually they tied it off to a telephone pole.
It wasn't windy by Bonaire standards, but the steady breeze was great for flying kites, as you can see here.
