The First week of May 2005, some of our Canadian family joined the North Carolina Mackies
and Ken came from Hawaii for a big family reunion at Emeral Isle, NC. 
.
Tom called for Viv to help him assist Ken
put up his Sail Kite on one of the sunny days.

Ken had quite a bit of gear to prepare, but finally he was ready to take off.

Bringing the Kite back up the beach was fun too.

They found some cocinas on the beach. Rob put them in a bucket and the little animals
decided to come out to see what was going on.

And quite often Viv paid loving attention to the children.

Grandma Mackie failed to take any more people pictures, so others with have to
share theirs.  I did take a walk town the beach one day and did a little photographic
beach combing.
