The motion in a viscous incompressible fluid of a vortex pair toward a rigid plane wall on which slip is allowed is considered. It is shown that the centroids of vorticity do not approach the wall monotonically, and there is some rebound at a rate depending upon the viscosity and initial separation of the vortices.
