Took the GoPro to Rockport TX this past week and as promised, I’ve posted a video below of our short trip.
This was such a fun trip. I did take my Nikon D7000 but never took it out of the camera bag…and I’m glad I didn’t. We knew a storm was going to come in but the kiddos wanted to go fishing…and Uncle Martin was not going to disappoint.
Tuesday during the day was nice but on Wed…rough seas. But we went out anyway. Aunt Trish and Liz knew better.
I had also purchased a Bobber for my GoPro, basically a bright yellow handle that attaches to the GoPro and if I lose it overboard, it floats. Plus, knowing my brother, if he lurched the boat to one side while I was getting that “interesting shot” it would make it easier to find me since I would not let go of my toy.
I had made a DIY version but didn’t want to take a chance. Plus, I took my long “extension pole” I had purchased a while back too. Gave me some interesting shots, the Dive Housing worked out well too. Even my son said, “Aren’t you glad you didn’t bring your big camera Dad?”
Ah…my kids know me so well.
Anyways, we had a blast (my butt did hurt for a while) and I’m glad we went out. Video cracks me up…it’s like we’re the Coast Guard or something.
Thanks for letting me share.
