Menlo Park is holding its annual Kite Day through 4:00 pm today at Bedwell Bayfront Park, and while the choice of kites was abundant and the enthusiasts were plenty, the wind was not cooperating (at least in the first hour of the event). With its numerous small peaks and bayside location, Bedwell Bayfront Park would seem an ideal kite flying location. In the hope that the wind would pick up, early participants enjoyed picnics or walked the still green parkland. Then there was the default choice of energetic boys and girls – run up and down the hillsides willing the kites upwards.
