The weather last week was super...and provided just the right opportunity for creative play. Thatcher Mines, who is spending several months on Ocracoke this winter with his family, went to the dump and salvaged various bicycle parts and other components to adapt a skateboard and construct a "kite trike" with his children. Here are several photos of them "kite-riding" down the winter beach.
You can see more photos and two videos of their project here.
