So last weekend we headed to the beach to try out the my new camera and play in the sand.  The water temperatures here are still very cold.  There were a few kids playing along the shoreline but none of them were venturing in past their knees.  With our long cold winter the lakes are taking a bit longer to warm up than normal. 

  So I picked up this mini camera on Ebay with the thoughts of using it as a kite cam.  It is super small and very light.  Also it was inexpensive at $13 so if it crashes into the ground or lake I'm not out much.   I rigged it to a para-foil.  This first attempt resulted in unusable video.   Next time I'm going to try to rig it to a delta or a box kite and see if I can get a more stable video.  I was able to take a few pictures on the beach not to bad for a 2 mega pixel cam the size of a quarter. 

Sorry Ruth
