I had the coolest underwater camera shell for my new Pentax Optio s4i...
but it still didn't prevent water droplets on the outerlens, obscuring my hard paddling expressions...
I was paddling hard because Jonah was afraid there was something biting his butt so I paddled like crazy while he hung on for dear life. For some reason when I look at this picture prunes flash before my eyes:
Here's Jonah in a more confident moment.
Oh, how I cheered, "You got it baby! You can do it! You're body surfing a huge wave!"
My lawyer forbids me to say what Jonah was doing to me to elicit my response:
The camera had endless modes which meant limitless fun.
Here's the polarizing filter that promises to capture fish in the water. What do you call schools and schools of fish you can't see?
The wide mode is a real help when trying to imagine life with a fat significant other:
And conversely, the skinny feature gives you a taste of life with an anorexic partner:
Poster mode was so successful we're awaiting word from Presidente Beers on the use of this image for an upcoming ad campaign:
The camera worked in chlorinated water:
As well as in salt water:
It wasn't the most inconspicuous camera though.
On a walk to the ATM guarded by guys with assualt rifles (no jokey) we ran into this little guy who kept saying something to me in Spanish and pointing to my camera. In my awkwardness I said "Oh, you want me to take a picture of you with this camera? Ok!"
We walked away and Jonah told me he had was saying, "You're rich and I'm poor." Great.
So naturally this interaction made us want to maximize our almighty dollar so since cigarettes cost only a dollar a pack we bought 100 cartons and now have a healthy online cigarette business.
We took many outings during the day to surf spots, to learn windsurfing, etc and we always found ourselves surrounded by Germans...interesting, exotic, unnerving:
On our way to Windsurfing 101 in a lagoon with only hints of wind ("Was that wind?! Oh, I guess it was just you breathing") we rode on the back of a truck with strong winds and yet there was a certain someone with a hat on:
Not for long...lesson was learned.
I love mangoes and she was the nicest fruit lady I ever met:
I love these trees with red flowers called Flamboyan, originally from Madagascar:
I also love surfing and that's why I don't mind looking like a dorkass to do it:
Jonah plans to wear these goggles on our wedding day:
Beautiful, reserved Mariposa:
Sleepy, cute Perro:
I just don't get Iguanas:
Individuo con el arbol que crece fuera de la cabeza. Thanks BabelFish Translations!
We found the best restaurant ever:
The best meal of my entire life:
Jonah gave it a try:
I looked like a drag queen with sunburned eyeballs.
Cautionary tale - Sunglasses are not just accessories. They are eyeball protectors. They shield your eyes from the scorching sun. You should wear them. It was too late for me but it may not be too late for you.
