Young boys trying their hands at kite flying

Just across the fish market at Sebiew River( located at the end of the old Bintulu airport), I noticed these children of the Kampung Baru fishing village trying their hands at kite flying. This small river acts as individual wharves or jetties for the fishing folks here. The tall riverine 'nipah'palms (Nypa fruticans )are a natural shade for their fishing boats. The Melanaus here love painting their houses in strong brilliant colours. It's at high tide at the time of photo taking.
