Adventure at 83: Woman's Dream of Riding in Hot Air Balloon Comes True

- It is never too late for an adventure. It was something she had been talking about doing for a long time and now, at age 83, she’s done it!

FOX 5 News caught up with Bernice as she was preparing for her first flight in a hot air balloon. The Cumming Nursing Center resident took a 5-mile on Tuesday thanks to Balloons Over Georgia and Marietta-based Second Wind Dreams.

Bernice was accompanied by her family and received a special certificate to commemorate the flight.

She told FOX 5 that she had been on many different adventurous journeys in almost every sort of vehicle, but never got the chance to float in a hot air balloon until now.
