We had gone to Newport Beach earlier in the afternoon, where CLC Boats was having a wooden boat show in the back bay. Yan and I got to try out some handmade kayaks and rowboats. We brought a nice cold lunch as well: chilled soba with dipping sauce. The boats provided inspiration for a future project, since my previous kayak burned down.
After being in the sun for half the afternoon, it’s time to find shade. We drove south on the Pacific Coast Highway and end up at Dana Point’s Salt Creek Beach, which is one of my favorite beaches. I brought our unique kite. It doesn’t look like it should fly, but apparently, by virtue of the Magnus Effect, there is enough lift to make it airborne. There wasn’t much of a breeze, but we managed to keep the kite up there for part of the time.
