On the windiest days in Redondo Beach...
everything seems more alive and magical.
From the flowers in the park, to the fowls in the sky
soaring on magical elevators of wind
The fishermen bait their hooks
beneath soaring kites under playful attack.
and failed attempts at flight.
Children race to Veteran's Park
4 year olds are hard to catch!
While the pelican looks to steal the fisherman's catch
But Fred the fisherman is wise. And he has learned all their tricks after years of fishing at the pier.
He knows each pelican
and all of their friends.
Back at the park…Sister swings
while brother screams
there will be no catch today...
today, the sea has won.
Tomorrow…maybe… at the pier...
The child will catch a kite. And the fisherman will catch a fish.
