Of course, it landed on a rock.
The lens housing was bent and a piece of the edge was broken off. I turned it on, and the lens came out the way it should, but it was rubbing on the housing as it extended and retracted. It seems to take pictures alright still, but last night the battery mysteriously went dead. Related? No idea.
Hm. Not quite round anymore!
You can see the broken piece...
We had paid for it with our Amex card and I thought to myself yesterday "I wonder if there was some kind of purchase protection insurance on that card".
So I looked up the card benefits, and sure enough it has a 90 day protection limit for if anything stupid happens to your new purchase. I called them up, and made the claim. Apparently I will hear from an adjuster within 48 hours to find out what they will do for us. But from everything I've read about other people who have used this purchase protection insurance, I'm feeling pretty confident. Ohh...and our 90 days would have been up on October 10th!
Yesterday, we went for a walk through the forest near here. Still lots of wildflowers out and about.
Ruth, walking in the woods.
Hmm. Gonna have to get around this water.
This is an interesting little plant. Not sure of it was a flower or some kind of berry, but it was the only one around. How does that happen?
Heading back into Ottawa this afternoon to do some more exploring! Check in tomorrow for more photos of Canada's Capital Region. Provided the camera recharges...
