lol sorry to laugh at your misfortune but it's a funny story. I can only imagine that sick feeling in your stomach once you know it's gone.I did learn the hard way about getting a floating strap. My little Olympus TG is at the bottom of Lake Hardin after a family paddleboarding trip on Saturday. I had it clipped to my life jacket for most of the trip. It only took unclipping it for 1 minutes to put it at the bottom of the lake.
