100-year-old sees ocean for first time

Just weeks before turning 101, Ruby Holt has seen the ocean for the first time.

Ruby spent most of her life on a farm in rural Tennessee picking cotton and said she never had the time or money to go to a beach.

The assisted living centre where she lives along with a charity which grants wishes to elderly people, called Wish of a Lifetime, paid for her to visit the Gulf of Mexico and experience walking on a beach and feeling waves on her feet for the first time.
