The Bon Secour River in southern Alabama from a couple years ago. We are planning on going back again this summer to the Redneck Riviera for our family vacation and we will most likely be kayaking down the Bon Secour again.
We were on vacation last week on the Alabama coast. The coast means beach and the beach means water, lots of water. I had some waterproof recyclable cameras and I took them out in the water. They are not as good as digital cameras but they took a good soaking and kept on going. And to be truthful I like the timeless look that some of them like the above have.
I could fearlessly hold the cameras just a few inches off the water. I have a “waterproof” camera also but I would never risk it. Sorry, I’m an engineer and I don’t care how good the seals and gaskets are, they will fail at some point.
I beg your pardon for the selfie. And no, I wasn’t drunk. After getting a gouge taken out of my forehead this year I’m in a high spf mode these days, note the big hat and the technical shirt which worked great in the water. I didn’t feel weighed down or uncomfortable at all.
Well, this is more like it. Heather and I really like the beach.
Another pic of son, He is a great swimmer and is like a fish. We’ve been taking him to the beach for years.
