Kites! Kites! and More Kites!

Well, since I left you off at Kitty Hawk Kite's Hang Gliding school last time... I would be remiss if I didn't point out the "kite" part of their name too! And, really, is there a better place to fly a kite than the beach? No pesky trees, telephone lines... or houses! Just plenty of space to get flying!

If you're at the beach, and thinking maybe you'd like to.. well, go fly a kite! Then Kitty Hawk Kites is THE place to go. While there are stores scattered up and down the Outer Banks, and on Ocracoke too, I have a soft-spot in my heart for the store right across from Jockey's Ridge.

This store is just jam-packed with every kind of kite you can imagine - from jellyfish to pirate ships, to parafoils, to stunt kites - you can find it all in one single spot.

Maybe you'd like a kite.. that's an airplane:

or a kite that's a shark...

or.... well, just about anything you can imagine! Even this sea creature!
