Six Word Saturday Story – Not!

I was looking at the usual SWSS idea but wanted to use this photo. I was going to be cute and use the following words…

Spain sucks – SUNNY Ireland is GREAT!

Yep… it’s that time of the year when many in northern and north-western Europe head for the Med! However, the ongoing heatwave and dry spell means we who have not booked flights are having a ball… here in lil ol Ireland! However, the main reason why I wanted to use the photo has nothing to do with the heatwave or the beach… or six words.

Yesterday, I was taught a quick lesson in humility… again! Yep, we took the trek down to the beach. To get to this particular spot where the photo was taken it needs a walk of at least 30 minutes. A terrific walk, when there’s a heatwave on! But… and here’s the BIG but… I was carrying my camera… and an extra lens… just in case I needed to take zooms. Only thing is… I hadn’t bothered to replace the memory card after uploading the last photos off the camera. So… I was carrying two very useless dead-weight items on a splendid walk.

There in lies the story of my lesson… me, the one who hates using a phone camera had to stoop low… and because I wanted the pic as proof that Ireland is as good a beach destination as anywhere else in Europe, I had to take the old phone out of the pocket and snap away!

PS – When I say old phone… I mean old phone. I suppose, because the camera is almost never used, that’s the reason why it still works!

PPS – What was the first thing I did when I got home? No, not kick my own posterior… yes, you guessed… replaced the camera’s memory card!

    Hoe lekker lag ek nou vir jou! Dit het my ook al oorgekom…mens wil jouself skop. In die dae voordat die kamera jou gewaarsku het dat daar nie ‘n kaart in is nie, het baie mense gekliek en gekliek, net om by die huis te kom met nie ‘n enkele foto nie…hahaaa!
    Pragtige foto, maar sou mooier met jou kamera gewees het, AJ.

      Ek belowe! Dis die lekkerste somer wat ons nog ooit hier gehaat het… hulle voorspel nog ‘n week na tien dae van die weer. Ierland is mooi, veral as die son skyn!! 😉
