Nothing special here as far as camera specifics- just a somewhat unusual setting I wanted to share.
Downtown Jacksonville urban waterway adventure.
(And...the last photos taken with ye' old, cheap and first digital camera...... I flipped the sit inside kayak and soaked the camera-busted, but I retrieved the card)
Hunters are present yet relatively uncommon in Florida :wink

    Bummer about the camera but interesting shots of a unique looking area.

    Thank you for the condolence sparse grey.

    All other gear was stowed in a dry bag, the camera was in an open case-on my lap. Amidst barnacle pilings, chilly water and fast current the first thing was to locate the camera bag-but too late.
    Even a good dry out and Corrosion Block did not bring her back to life.

    The urban waterway is a strange and interesting setting.Some of you here on the Forum could probably really crank out some dandy images.

    As my grandfather use to tell me, "Now you have an adventure story to tell." Thanks for the photos. I have been in that part of the river before.

    Downtown Jacksonville in the back ground. Seems like many small craft excursions are an adventure.
