Goodbye to Seattle, Jason and my lens!

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.

  1. Yeah that’s an expensive hobby you have there! I live in dread of dropping and breaking this used smartphone I got from Linda… I can barely get around on it too, so far. I have an Otter case for my phone too. It’s seemingly tough as nails.

    Well you know you can always get your own Bedlington if you need a Bedly fix! (heh heh)
    Safe travels!
