LA NUCÍA 87-year-old resident Bernand Makinson proved you're never too old for a new adventure when he had a birthday treat of a lifetime - a helicopter ride over Benidorm and the surrounding coastline - along with his son Anthony and grandson Daniel who were visiting, and who also celebrate their birthdays within a month of each other.
THREE generations of the Makinson family had a birthday treat of a lifetime – a helicopter ride over Benidorm and the surrounding coastline.
The elder of the clan, 87-year-old Bernard lives in La Nucia and had son Anthony and grandson Daniel visiting.
As their birthdays all fall within a month of each other, Bernard’s wife Sue thought what a memorable event it would make to send them out together on an unforgettable adventure – one that not many 12 year olds get to experience.
“They had no idea where they were going until we pulled up at the helipad” said Sue. Fortunately she had convinced them to take their cameras - but being a professional photographer it was second nature for Anthony, who regularly works for artist Damien Hurst.
It certainly was a Kodak moment and one that the three boys thoroughly enjoyed and will remember for years to come.
