It seems like a lovely fall tradition, to get outdoors, enjoy the fall blooms, hike a mountain, and fly a kite.
Double Ninth day fell on the same day as our Thanksgiving, and though we did not get to enjoy Chrysanthemum tea, we picked up some mums to bring home, enjoyed a bit of a climb and tried flying a kite.
