Okay I have been complaining about my camera for a while now, and I finally did something about it. I went out and picked up the Olympus E-500 yesterday, and it is the greatest... Turning it on, and it is on in less the a second, the auto-focus is so much quicker then the Fuji 5100 I was using, and doubling up on the pixels 4 megapixel to 8 is impressive. So I guess I have no excuses now, I guess except for the learning curve involved, it is going to take a while to fully figure this out...
So now the other new thing. My son has been expressing a desire to go kayaking more often, so we out and picked up a Pamlico 100 and took it out for its maiden voyage today. If you take a look at the pictures, that is a pretty happy kid... I hope to have Nick out more often, and as we build up his stamina, hopefully we will be able to get to where the Bald Eagles are
Well as far as the trip goes, I was not expecting anything of any great distance, but Nick actually made it about a mile, before developing a blister on his hand. I guess it was the death grip he had on the paddle that caused that...
We saw several species of birds, but the blackbirds were the most prevalent, we also saw a few hawks overhead, and gar in the creek.
