The Camera Broke WHEN???

Who has a camera that breaks right at the beginning of a boat ride along the beautiful shoreline of Chicago... at sunset?  That would be me.  


We'll be home tomorrow, but I wish we never had to leave (or at least not until cold weather returns). I love, love, love this city!  First thing on the agenda this morning...a new camera. ;) Then I'm crossing the street to get a bagel from Einstein's. Oh, how I miss having an Einstein's close to home. :)

My Journey With Candida said...

Oh no!! Not the camera... Well I am sure you had your cell phone for pictures.

Pat Hatt said...

Can't use your phone? Better than nothing.

You came to town just as we get good weather. It will be a bit cooler tomorrow.
I hope that you enjoyed the stay.

Betty Taylor said...

Chicago is a great city to visit. Hope you find a camera soon. Would love to see pics!

Masshole Mommy said...

Oh no - that's the worst timing possible!

Manzanita said...

I used to love Chicago. Always went there often in the old days. I'm such a child of the depression, I always carry a spare camera. LOL
Keep having fun.

Pride In Photos said...

Oh no....terrible timing...sounds like something that would happen to me☺

Lizbeth McGow said...

Oh sweetie what a pain...but hey you're still there and there's plenty of time for awesome pictures that you know I'm dying to see! I've never been there (what surprise huh?) so I intend to visit through your pictures...so keep calm and photo on....Hug, Lizy

Secondary Roads said...

What a pity to lose your camera at a time like that.

Robin said...

How frustrating. Most people use their phones to take pictures. I can't figure out how to get them off my phone, so I don't. But I am an exception to the rule.

Julie Maloney said...

I love that city. I was stuck in Venezuela once for ten days because of a strike and was stuck eating peanut butter out of a jar the entire time. My first stop back in the US was Chicago, I swear my first real meal was the best I've ever tasted.

Theresa said...

Man, that's horrible about the camera! I love Chicago. Seriously, one of the best cities in the world! I hope you are enjoying your trip. Can't wait to hear about what you did while you were there!

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Oh no, that's too bad! I've been to Chicago a couple times and I have to say it is one of my favorite cities. I absolutely love it there!

Ramakant Pradhan said...

Aww that's tough luck. I am sure you will soon be in love with the new camera. Hope to see clicks from the new camera over here soon.

Kristi Maloney said...

That's called Murphy's Law! lol Well, I hope you found a nice replacement. Enjoy the rest of your trip. I've never been to an Einsteins - but it sounds great!

Kenya G. Johnson said...

Awww that stinks about the camera. Soooooo time to get a phone with a camera. You know I'm never going to let you live down the TRACFONE right?

I love Chicago too. I've only been once but I loved it! Did you get some popcorn?

Raising Reagan said...

Oh bummer ... Chicago is one of my favorite cities. I love it there! Have a safe trip home my friend!

I loved Chicago too - it just has everything - and the downtown is busy and the people so diverse! Oh yeah - I'm from there - was born and raised. Love, sandie

Kristie said...

Oh no! I hope you were able to get a new camera! I would be lost without mine while vacationing. Enjoy your trip! :-)

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

Oh no, that really sucks :( you'll just have to paint us a picture with words :)

~ Noelle said...

Oh NO.. that would TOTALLY be MY LUCK.
hope yall are having a great time!!!

Brandi Mendieta said...

Yikes! Thats something that would happen to me!!! Have a fun trip and hope you enjoyed your bagel :D

Binky said...

Those kind of things always happen at the most inopportune time!

myshelomitashop said...

Oooh that sucks! I have had similar experience with camera. Not breaking but we were using the film roll (this was back in Godzilla time where digital camera was an alien) and we happily took pictures the whole day. When we wanted to develop the film, it didn't hook in the right place so it didn't roll whenever we clicked to take photos. So basically we were taking pictures of nothing ha ha... T_T

Of all the times

Holy Ghost Writer said...

ugg well at least you have an excuse for a new one

mail4rosey said...

We've had TracPhones for a bazillion years. Usually I like paying $20 every few months and still having the security of the phone, but now that you mentioned it, I could have sure used a fancy phone that night. :)

mail4rosey said...

See above where I humbly admit my dinosaur phone usage. ;)

mail4rosey said...

I looked a little for the popcorn, but didn't see it. :(

mail4rosey said...

And I'm so used to having a TracPhone that I didn't even think about a smartphone taking pictures until I saw replies on here, lol. What a dinosaur (me & my phone, lol).

mail4rosey said...

We stayed downtown (we usually don't) and it made the trip even more awesome.

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

How frustrating about the camera!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

That would be so stressful. I am glad you are getting to see wonderful places and things though.

alissa apel said...

I wish I could get a new one. I'm glad you got to visit a pretty city!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

That's a beautiful shot! Sorry about your camera.

Monica said...

Oh no! I'm so sorry about your camera! So glad that you had a great trip though. :)

mail4rosey said...

Oh my gosh Maria, I think of your dad all of the time. It's so hard when someone's struggling that we love. I know it first hand from not long ago at all. We had a very happy ending and I'm hoping that for you all too!

Carla said...

Sorry to hear about your camera. My husband has broken two different ones when we were on vacation. One time my husband put the camera in a weird pocket, and then put his pants in the dirty laundry, and my mom washed it (yeah, my mom totally still does my laundry, along with my husband's and my son's when we are at her house, even though I'm 30...she does it before my husband and I feel like we have a full load). The other time he dropped it.

Melissa Swedoski said...

I don't have the breaking camera problem. I have the "forgot to put film (now SD card) in the camera, so I have absolutely no pictures." Yep, that's me.
And I totally agree - I would love to spend the summer in Chicago.
