Skydiving
Words By Darrel Mellies and Photography by Jo Clark

Skydiving at 69 – floating free with the sun on my face

A few days before turning 69, I looked at an online discount site and noticed a coupon for a tandem-skydive. Wanting to do this for close to 40 years, the thought of checking off an item on my bucket-list excited me. I immediately purchased the coupon and prepared to go skydiving.

Weeks later, we made the early morning drive to a small airport west of Georgetown, and my adventure began. Although Jo was not thrilled about me jumping, she agreed to take photos and document my bucket list adventure.
