Mrs. 44 and I were walking on the beach when we spotted the skydivers descending toward the windsurf huts near Marriott. It was impressive to see the amount of control these guys had. Here's a link to my video of the scene:
We had never skydived before but have wanted to for years, so when we booked our trip to Aruba we decided this was our chance! We were not disappointed. Being able to see the entire island as you are falling from 10,000 feet was amazing. The team at Skydive Aruba were very professional and made us feel safe. It was the biggest thrill of our trip.
I love the beach (who doesn't?), anywhere that I can snorkel, The Donkey Sanctuary (much to the dismay of my daughter), the lighthouse.
My son and I will be jumping out of a perfectly good airplane on our upcoming trip. Friday, August 17th is the day! If anyone is on Palm Beach and sees us floating (gracefully, I hope) to the ground around 1pm, wave!!!!
