It was a perfect day for windsurfing.
A storm, rain plastering down, empty beaches.
My iPhone took great pics and survived.
Until, at day’s end, it took a plunge in the jacuzzi.
Now it is bathing in rice, for another 24 hours.
Hoping for the best and enjoying its pictures in the meantime.

OMG!!!! no no nnnnnoooooooo!
You know I am freaking out on your behalf, and holding my phone tightly to my chest right now.
Thank goodness you have some stunning photos here that I can look at to calm down. 🙂
I was really very, very sad. I know it is ‘only’ technology, which can be replaced. But over the course of the last few months the iPhone has become my go-to, daily camera, really. Oh well…
OH NO! I hope the rice trick does the job. Your pictures are great though I did wonder about you windsurfing in that gale! I saw in the news this morning there were sharks on the beach down your way!
As you know by now – it did not… Sharks?! Good thing I didn’t know before – phew. But we are usually windsurfing in the (enclosed) bay, so no sharks, but still. David’s boogie boarding…
I set my phone on fire last Friday. Like flames.
I do hope your phone dries out. But I do not recumbent setting it on fire.
How did you set it on fire?! Oh my – I think that would totally freak me out.
You captured the storm perfectly……
Thank you, Deborah. Can you tell, I love some good drama in the clouds and/or water 🙂
That second to last one scares me! Wow! The forces of nature.
Our week has been SO wet, which looks pretty cool with all of the bright foliage.
Yep, and it should! Seriously, waves and surf, shore break can be so powerful. And easy, very easy to underestimate. I stayed well away from that one.
I bet the foliage is great at the moment. Actually since we’re back, I just got a glimpse at it. Especially against a grey sky.
Oh no! What a pity! Hopefully, your valuable phone dries out! Somehow reminds me of a movie featuring Christoph Waltz and Kate Winsley (a.o.) throwing his iPnone into a flower vase (Carnage – German Gott des Gemetzels…)
At least your photos convey an impression of the storm’s power! Did you and David really go out on this occasion?
Hahaha – I love that ‘German Gott des Gemetzels’ – LOL – don’t know the film though 🙂 Well, unfortunately it did not dry out, I will need a replacement.
I actually did not got out, that’s another story, but I would have. And David did. It actually looks worse than it was at the time. You know – editing… 😉
Okay now I understand it’s your phone you lost. What a bummer. Can you get it replaced? – There were some awesome shots here. I loved those dark stormy clouds and the crashing waves.
Yep, only the phone. I will get it replaced. Just got back from the Apple store and they don’t have it in stock, but another one does and I hopefully will be picking it up tomorrow.
