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.
