Camera Problems !@#$

When I first arrived in Watamu I was amazed by how beautiful it was and wanted to take as many pictures as possible to show all of you back home this incredible place. On my first day at the beach I took my new digital camera out in the ocean where it was shallow, but I was hit by an unexpected wave that knocked me over and flooded my camera with salt water.

Unfortunately, there was no CPR I could do on my camera and it drowned and is now dead. The only pictures I have of my trip to Mombasa are the few I was able to take before this tragic incident. I know that a picture is worth a thousand words and so I am now shopping for a new camera, but until then we may have to rely on high-quality "mental" images. My apologies.

Man, that sucks! You just don't have a good record with digital cameras, do you? For the record, most of them aren't water-proof and almost none of them are run-over-by-a-car-proof.

Well, I hope we will see more of your hi-res memories.

God Bless

It's true! I can't have a nice camera without busting it to pieces. Funny thing is that I almost bought a waterproof digital camera before I left, but thought it wasn't necessary. I think what I need is a Tim-proof camera.

God Bless,
