Hi Cliff:When my son scooped the camera out of the water, he was feeling really awful. When I heard the splash and his “Oh S__t” my first reaction was to blurt an expletive, but instead I took a deep breath and turned around. My worst fears were confirmed. After he retrieved the camera, he apologized and using all of the fortitude I could muster I stepped closer, locked eyes with him and said: "Don't worry, hardware can be replaced! It’s not the important thing."I meant it. We were on a trip we had been talking about for 10 years, and planning since last fall. (My sons are in their 20s). So I regretted that my camera was out of commission and I dreaded replacing it. I was also concerned that the memory card was damaged, and I had lost all of those photos.As it turned out, I lost nothing and gained a lot!We talk about that trip with enthusiasm and this camera episode had become part of the family lore and a part of that adventure.Dar Wood
