Sooo, I was debating what to discuss today for my post and realized I had a meeting out at the beach. “Oh, good,” I said to myself, “the camera is still in the car from the event where I was the official photographer last week. Super. I’ll make pictures out there and chat about the beautiful beach we have here.” And indeed, I went to my meeting. Afterwards, I grabbed the big ole honkin’ Nikon out of its case and got out of the car with it. Got to the sand and looked down. Yep. Battery dead. Yours truly left the thing on in the car all week. DUH!
“Not to worry,” I said. “You have your Ipod touch.” Yep. I did. It was dead, too. Forgot to charge it. “But, wait, Jillian there’s actually an Ipad in the car. Use that.” It DID have battery life so I was super excited. By now, I was at Surf Burger, one of my favorite beach restaurants. I popped out of the car and snapped a picture with the Ipad. I chose not to take more than that one as I needed to get back to my office.
Okaaaay. Once I got home, I decided to email the picture from Ipad to computer to post with this entry. Guess what? NO PICTURE ON IPAD!! Where the heckfire it went, I have no clue. I snapped it. I swear I did. Alas, I shall have to use an old pic of the beach for this post and taunt you all with Surf Burger another day. Here is their website: http://www.thesurfburger.com – They have what they say is the best burger in paradise. I, for one, happen to agree. Their secret sauce is super. And the hula fries are marvelous.
On another note, when I got home, I also had a thank you note from the lady in charge of the event last week and it said, in part, “Your photographs are wonderful. You have a gift for capturing character.” Yeah, I guess I might. If I can remember to have charged batteries!
