I’ve decided that Mam’s photos were too interesting to ignore, in spite of the fact that she and Dad left on a trip during our holiday without me. So while she’s sleeping – Can you imagine? Still nursing that cold! – I’ve decided to blog about their daytrip out on a boat.
Personally, I was quite annoyed by their leavng me for hours and hours, all for going out on a boat. There’s no fun in that at all, and the weather was overcast and gray until they got back. But y’knows, stubborn humans, they went anyways, litterally chasing waterfalls.
Apparently the area once was volcanic, and while Mam wasn’t entirely convinced by the captain, despite the sign in the cabin saying “Nobody’s perfect – except the Captain”, she did take some photographs as they passed by the cliffs and rocks.
Yup. I know. They left cute little me for that? Well, that and a whale that they weren’t even guaranteed they’d get to see. But in the end they did, so I suppose it wasn’t all a waste on their part.
It could’ve been disastrous, though, and Mam’s still annoyed with herself because of it. Apparently she did a lot of clicking on the camera, but had forgotten to set it to autofocus. I suppose it was because it was raining so she couldn’t see properly and was hurrying the photos, after all, not like she could get the whale to stop and pose, but a lot of the pics were blurry.
She did so a fairly good portrait of Dad, though, so while she makes quite a few silly mistakes, she sometimes gets it right.
Don’t you think?
