Jumping for joy

My niece has come over from England for a month.

One of the first things she wanted to do was to enjoy

The spectacular sunset.

Mission accomplished!

  6. I have to ask…how many times did she have to jump before you caught the pic?? If the answer is just ONCE, I am IMPRESSED!

    • I took a series of six photos. (You can see two others on Facebook). Only one of her in mid-air though, so I’m pleased.
