Woman celebrates 100th birthday in big way

A woman in South Africa proves you're never too old for an adventure.  

Thrill seeking centenarian Georgia Harwood went shark diving in South Africa on Monday. She fearlessly climbed into a custom built cage to get an up close and personal glimpse of the sharks.

She even fed them pieces of cut up fish meat.

All this happened just two days after she went skydiving to celebrate turning 100! She described that jump as exhilarating.

"I'm so glad I did it, a special experience in my life time, I just can't compare it to anything else. I really think it doesn't compare to anything. As I say, I've climbed mountains, I've been in boats," said Harwood.

Harwood's birthday jump out of a plane on Saturday was her third time skydiving. She did her first jump when she was 92-years-old in 2007.
