The third good thing  
3. I went for a hike. Just half an hour up in the woods behind my house. I took my camera so that I can show y'all what loveliness lies therein. Armed with only the aforementioned camera, a bottle of water and my house key, I set off on the path I thought would lead to the reservoirs. Alas, after five minutes or so it opened onto someone's yard. I'll have to ask the previous owner of my own house about the 'Reservoir Path.' I retraced my steps and turned off onto the Waterfall Path, stopping every so often to take a picture. I had just slipped my camera back into its case when a deer crossed my path. We looked at each other for a moment. I slowly reached for my camera. The deer flipped its tail and trotted away. bah.

By this time, I heard the waterfall. I paused to take one more shot: the path, flanked on both sides by tall, straight trees and carpeted with ferns. Then, I heard it, a whizzing whine that could only mean one thing: I was out of film. As I'd brought nothing other than camera, water and key, I was out of luck. The waterfall that had been my ultimate goal for this hike was there, twenty feet away, and I had no frelling film. Again, bah.

Guess I'll just have to go back soon, yes?

From just your description I can imagine the feeling of being there. It sounds wonderful.

digital camera=not worrying about running out of film :)
