Survive, Thrive & Be Fit at Christopher Farm & Gardens (including our Inaugural Kite Flying session)!

We enjoyed a beautiful late summer day at the Christopher Farm & Gardens!  During our last visit Jay Christopher indicated, "There are some nice spots to fly kites!"  So, thanks to his great idea... about 40 folks participated and I counted a total of 31 different kites in the air throughout the day!!!  In addition to kite flying, there was an OUTDOOR Gentle Yoga for Cancer Survivors session, some Disc Golf and another opportunity to just wander and explore this beautiful property!

Bob H completed these two kite kits... and I just had to share the design that includes our "ST&BF" mascot!

NOTE: I regret to report the kite at right crossed lines with a bigger kite on Sunday, cutting its line... and it was last seen resting about fifty feet up in an evergreen tree!

Bruce B completed this star kite kit and also included the SCCCF mascot!

Leave it up to Bob (along with Ruth) to figure out a way to keep his kite in the air... even if he (or the wind) wants to take a rest!
