Noel's Skydiving Adventure!

After being postponed for a couple of weeks, yesterday Noel got to do his tandem jump. There was 
a delay due to the fog but once it lifted, 
it was a perfect day to jump 
out of a perfectly good plane!
 Getting harnessed.
 Practicing for landing.
 Prejump interview.
 Time to go!
 That's Ritchie, his new best mate.
 Looking a bit worried here.
 Thumbs up!
 Coming in for the landing.
 We even got a wave.
 Touch down!
 The Support Team.
See, I do wear something other than dresses!

So there you have it. 
Noel finally got his 60th birthday present.

That's amazing Christine. Good on him, but I think I'll stay safely in the plane! I did notice the jeans, even before you pointed it out.
