The kids look like they are having a blast. One of our friends from another group went parasailing when the group got together in Myrtle Beach.
She was around 80 years old.
The other picture is kind of terrifying, but I'm getting so skeptical these days about anything like that I see online. I checked on it, and it's probably photoshopped.


Be a prism, spreading God's light and love, not a mirror reflecting the world's hatred.

PARAGLIDING IS UNWISE OVER SHARK-INFESTED WATERS. JUST SAYING.

I wonder if the paraglider's name is Chumley.

Looks like that shark photo is a fake, Photo Shop edited.

It may have been as it is just one that turned up on FB, although a person or two were eaten by sharks while they were there.

The image of the shark was taken from a photograph by David Jenkins for the Cater News Agency in 2013. The original photograph came from a series of images documenting a great white shark's attempt to catch a seal off the coast of South Africa.

If you look very closely at the water line of the left side of the shark you can just make out the two rear flippers on a seal that narrowly escape from the shark as it lunged upward in attacking the seal.

Lovely photos Twilight! I hope they weren't as close as the picture looked.
