Flying High - no plane!

Over the beach in Ixtapa
As soon as I saw the paraglide operation on our Mexican beach, I issued a family challenge:  who wanted to join me in the air?  Bill can't understand why anyone would want to jump out of a perfectly functioning plane, so the idea of being towed behind a boat sure didn't appeal to him.  Jay, Chris and Julie took up the challenge, with Chris so confident of a dry landing that he brought his camera along for the ride:

Grandma's takeoff and landing were captured in these videos:

An exhilarating experience!
