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!
