Swoop

Not sure how I hadn’t seen this before, but it’s certainly something worth preserving on here for posterity and revisitation.

This, according to the Youtube authorship anyway, is Jean-Jacques Wallis, and he’s jumping off the Lions Head (remember when my wife did that?) and paragliding down to Clifton beach.
Fast and hard and low.

Ever so low.

Blimey. Bit toight approaching the beach there. Squeaky bum time.

Colour me impressed by his bravery and skill. And yes, at some point, this sort of thing usually all ends in tears, but for the moment, let’s come along and enjoy the good times while we can.

P.S. There’s another one here.

Jump!

My wife stepped off the Lions Head in Cape Town this morning and floated gently and gracefully down towards Clifton beach.

For non-Capetonians, that’s the mountain in question on the right and Clifton on the left.

For Capetonians, I’ll post the hospital visiting hours on here shortly…

UPDATE: More photos here. And a video here.
