ITS NEVER TOO LATE... for adventure .
for her 90th birthday, Fransie Quass's children presented her with a unique gift:
a Tandem Paragliding flight with the most experienced Tandem pilot in South Africa, Pete Wallenda.
Since she witnessed Paragliding at the Beatenberg in Switzerland a few years back she has wanted to take to the skies. The weather and flying site were carefully chosen and on 23rd October it came together. She was enthusiastically ready, with running shoes and a warm jumper. Launch was a breeze and up and up into the skies they went. For Fransie, a long dream came to fruition. After approx. 15 min of soaring gently in the air above Hermanus her comment at landing was "this was so easy" she said it with a big smile. Her daughters, Lanie, Fransie and Hannelie were then next in line and also thoroughly enjoyed it.
To celebrate this very special experience, they went to fetch fresh FISH at the local Fishery ‘Whale coast' and shared a bottle of wine - WHAT A DAY!
