Joan: Seizing the bird's eye view
At the age of 73, I’m taking the chance to do things I've always wanted to do. One of those things is ziplining. I read about a ziplining company in my local newspaper and my family and I decided to try it out on our recent trip to Kauai.
Ziplining isn't for everyone. When asked to join in, my daughter-in-law's parents said, "No way!" However, my son, daughter-in-law and grandson were up for the challenge. When I asked our guide, he said the oldest person to have ziplined with them was a man in his early 80s.
Launching from a five-story-high pad, we flew for almost a mile. Seeing the lush and scenic landscape with a bird's eye view was very fun and exhilarating. I'm so glad that I took this opportunity!
