Last week I bought an Olympus E-510 because of all the good things I've been hearing about it from this forum. Diane, I think Olympus should pay you for being their "Official Labradoodle Forum Salesperson."

I was pondering getting an SLR and since the E-510 went on sale here last week I just had to do it.

This past weekend we went on a mini vacation to Tofino - which is about as far west as you can get in Canada. You can rent cabins right on the beach and the one we went to was pet friendly. They even had dog towels and a doggie quilt for them to sleep on.

Just about everyone walking on the beach had a dog so it was great.

Anyway, here are some pictures.

HENRY PLAYING WITH HIS FRISBEE



A VERY BAD THROW SENDS THE FRISBEE INTO THE OCEAN

LAMENTING HIS LOST FRISBEE



HEY - A STICK IS JUST AS GOOD

We went for a walk later in the afternoon when the tide was low to look for the frisbee. We saw a nice little cream coloured dog happily trotting along with it and we didn't have the heart to take it away from him. :cry:

Henry what a fun day at the beach!!! You are such a gentleman to let the pup keep your frisbee. Christmas is coming bud. Make sure you tell Dad that a new frisbee is on the list.

It is going to take some time to figure out all the settings but I just love it.

I work at a university and they give employees interest free loans to buy computers and digital cameras. They take $50 off every paycheck so it's easy to pay off. That's how I bought my laptop. Well, the day after I bought the camera I phoned payroll and they said, "oh the policy just changed....now it's only for computers." :oops: :oops:

I'm still glad I bought it but it's bad timing for my VISA right before Christmas. :shock:
