Gayla Kites:


Back in 'the day', I loved Gayla kites. I just found the above site today. I had the three kites pictured, but my favorite was the spacecraft. When we would go to Cape Cod to visit my grandparents, my folks always let me get a kite for the beach. Good times, for sure.

Had the bat kite. Also flown on a Cape Cod beach... I lived on Sea Street, just a short walk from the beautiful beach.

We spent our summers in chatham, at my grandparent's house. My great grandfather built the house. He owned a restaurant called The Rexford (his name was Rex) on route 28 in Harwich. He sold it in the late 70's. It's since been totally renovated and is nothing like it used to be. The last I knew it was a place called "nick and dick's".

I am pretty sure I had one of these kites as well (and if not this specific brand, something very similar) but vacationed at the Delaware shore.

I've never been there, sorry to say.

We've talked about Cape Cod area for a summer vacation but just haven't been able to pull it off yet. I'd like to find somewhere in the mid-Atlantic / New England regions that offers wakeboarding. Have not done that before and would like to see what that is about. I am sure we could do that in the bays surrounding DE / MD beaches but also like to see some new places.

wow, you guys were wealthy. One set of my grandparents lived on a farm near Crete Nebraska, cows,pigs, chickens you know the routine. Mike's lived in a place called Trails Run, Byesville Ohio...coal mining. with an outhouse.

Nice kites, never had one of those either, or a slinky.

Cool dad: If you can make it, try. It's a great place.

Maggie: Never had a slinky???? That's just wrong.
