In which the weather (and the new camera) are not what I had hoped
Finally, the truck is un-borked, and I awoke this morning to bright, shiny...errr, rain.
|This was the only completely non-blurry picture I took|
from the saddle today. We were standing still.
Time to try out the new raincoat...and the new camera.
I haven't completely given up hope of finding my Old Faithful Camera, because Gail and Mike are planning to look for it today while they are un-marking the stretch of trail where it got lost on ride day.
It's been gone so long, though, that I went out and purchased a replacement...practically the same camera.
A little newer...and, it turns out, a bit inferior.
|This was one of the less-blurry photos. Nice color, crummy resolution.|
I know, I know: I live in a state where recreational pot is legal...but not for electronic devices.
|Camera lens: comfortably numb|
However, the hood flies off at anything faster than a medium trot. So that's sub-optimal.
Fee's medium trot feels like she's barely moving (it clocks at about 7mph).
Also, I have no talent whatever at selfies, and this camera doesn't help much.
|Just nod if you can hear me / Is there anyone home?|
But hey. Riding. THAT'S a good thing.
And the sunny weather is supposed to return tomorrow.
|Well I can ease your pain / And get you on your feet again.|
I really hope it does.
