I have a very short bucket list, and a seaplane ride was near the top, if not the top. Betty gave us a seaplane experience last April for my 70th birthday. What a thrill! I highly recommend doing some (if not all) of the things you might have dreamed about... sometimes it's better than you might have dreamed.
I took the GoPro and videoed the whole experience. It was incredibly easy and most of the pics came out great... wish I were a little steadier. Being a composer and performer, i was able to do my own music after the pics were edited. I hired my Englishman friend, Dave Walker, to read my narration. The whole experience was a blast, then getting to relive it in the editing was almost as good. A goPro and a laptop... that's it. Then share it on Vimeo!
