Another Camera Bites the Dust

These might be the last two pictures ever to be taken by my NEW CAMERA. Only had it a few weeks.

As you can tell here, we had some boat troubles. Motor just wouldn't get the gasoline it needed. Air bubble? Flooded? Bad fuel filter? We just couldn't figure it out.

More later. Time to go out to dinner...

Back from dinner. We all shared a 28 inch pizza. It was HUGE. My brother has 3 boys and they all have huge appetites so that pizza didn't stand a chance. Not even one piece was left over for later. :-(

Anyway, back to the camera story. The motor wouldn't work so my brother hiked back to where the truck was left at the boat launch. Another boat came by and they agreed to help tow us (Kyle, Corey and I were with the boat) back to the boat launch. And part way there, that boat stalled out too.

So we were all in the water trying to tow both boats close enough to shore to tie them up. I was wet up to mid-chest and unfortunately my camera was with me. The screen in the back is completely full of water. Not good.

I'm going to let it dry out for a few days, maybe a week, and then try to start it up again. All my cameras have been dunked at least a few times while kayaking so maybe this one has a chance---but it doesn't look good.

It's too bad, I really like this camera. If it doesn't make it, I'll probably order another one of this same model. It was less than $120 and seems worth at least twice that to me.

That's too bad, Dave. Maybe you should get a waterproof camera.

It's nice to know that I've been sticking the pins in all the right places.

LOL In your dreams, Stacy. If you really had those kind of powers there'd be a few targets before my electronic toys that you'd aim at... yet I suspect they remain in place. Entrenched, one might say.
