Oh No ! We lost all our photos.

We had just completed a trip down the York Peninsula in lovely South Australia down to the copper mining town of Moonta as we both like history and enjoyed a special time there and were on the way back to Port Augusta, When I decided to download the photos off our cameras, mine went well but Derek’s was a disaster the computer wouldn’t recognize his SD card . We fiddled about for a bit,   But still no go by now I was a bit frustrated so we decided to go for a walk, we took his camera as I wanted to see if I could take photos of birds. I saw a lovely one and asked Derek to take it as he was carrying the camera. When he turned it on, it came up with a notice that there was a problem so he agreed to reformat the SD card, too late we had lost nearly 400 photos from our time in Adelaide and down the York Peninsula. We were both gutted as it was not likely we would ever do that trip again. Fortunately Derek is an avid collector of information from the I- sites so have some photos in them but the more personal ones we could not replace. I had a few photos so that helped also. With our aged memories we rely on photos to help jog the highlights of the trip. We have since bought a new SD card and are far more careful.
