DH and I are in Kauai now. We were on the BI last week. I had about 400 photos that are irreplacable...of our 3rd anniversary, turtles we can upon sunning themselves on A-Bay, us spelling out a message in white coral on Highway 19 on the BI, and just this morning, tons of priceless photos of a monk seal on Shipwreck Beach. All of a sudden tonight, my digital camera read "memory card error", and ALL the photos are gone :( I am heartbroken to lose these memories, and have been crying all night. DH is at a loss to console me, AND it's my birthday today! Anyways, the concierge here at the Hyatt gave us some photo recs for stores that might be able to help. A couple didn't answer as it's almost 9 p.m. here, but Photo Spectrum said to bring the card in tomorrow and they'd see if they could retrieve anything. They said it's 50/50.
I'm posting for 3 reasons:
1.) Has anyone had this happen, and what was your outcome?
2.) Any more specific recs of digital camera places I could look into on Kauai?
3.) To tell you all to DOWNLOAD YOUR PHOTOS EVERYDAY IF POSSIBLE! I am sick that I didn't do this, since we have our laptop with us. I am so distraught over losing all these photos.
Anyways, any help/advice/similar experiences is much appreciated. Mahalo!
