instead of spending the entire trip in ojai, we woke up on sunday morning and drove up the coast to santa barbara. sb is one of my favorite california cities- it seems to get prettier each time i visit. this time, we magically happened to end up at a dog beach... which for us, is the equivalent of heaven. we spent 2 hours sitting on the sand, being the creeps without a dog who kept trying to play with everyone else's dogs. it worked out pretty well- we made friends with the cute little dude in the photos above, as well as some other randoms who would come over and shake off their ocean soaked coats on us and lick our face before running to catch a ball. operation hang out with dogs at the beach was a major success.
i brought my camera in to be fixed, and was told that it would cost $300 to fix, although the camera is now only worth $200, and would take a month.
instead, i got a brand spankin' new camera (a canon rebel t2i, to be exact), and i have never been so in love with an inanimate object before, sans my macbook. i have been practically hugging it all day. product shots were a BREEZE this afternoon, and i cannot wait to put my 50mm lens on it and take it out for a spin. oh, and it has VIDEO!!! i'm going to be posting so many stupid little nonsensical videos, you just watch. thanks so much for all the kind words about my camera problem, but it all worked out for the best! now i must try to sell everything i own to pay for this thing.
