This morning we headed to Seattle to have lunch with Jason and say our good-byes. When I was getting out of the car after we arrived, I dropped my camera on the ground. The good news is that the camera still works. The bad news is the lens I just fixed is broken, perhaps beyond repair. See picture below with exposed electronic parts. Argh!!!!
We had a wonderful lunch with Jason at Cutter’s, right on the sound. The food was delicious and the company delightful. After lunch, we went to a camera store where I purchased a 10-18mm lens. The one I broke is an 18-200mm lens. I’m hoping it can be fixed but I will have to wait until I get home to find a repair shop. We won’t be in one place long enough before then to try to get it repaired along the way.
I need to find an Otter case for my camera. I doubt they make them, but it would work for me. I have an Otter Case for my phone and my kindle and it has saved their lives on many an occasion. If I continue to be such a klutz, I may have to give up photography because I can’t afford to keep fixing camera parts.
I have been considering buying a paddle board. I will have to wait and see what the cost of repairing or replacing this lens is before I can think about a paddle board.
Worst of all, was saying good-bye to Jason. It has been awesome to get to see him so often and I don’t know when we’ll get to see him again. We’re going to miss Coco too. The two of them are an amazing combination. I hope we get to see each other again soon for the right reasons.
