Beachside Kite Flying, Destin, Florida

While I really rather enjoyed my time at the beach in Destin, I did experience a phenomenon that I did not fully understand.

There was this fad whereby people attached kites to their beach chairs or coolers and let them fly for the duration of their beach stay on that day. The kite fluttered around getting ever higher until reaching the end of the line.

I just don't comprehend where the joy and satisfaction came from in so-doing; it's not like the folks were actively flying the kites themselves, or playing, running, and frolicking on the beach. 

Nope, they just had a bit (albeit a long "bit") of floating string attached to the chair in which they were sitting. Nevertheless, it was kind of nice to look at.
