Kathy, I had for years used a Fuji FinePix, which I was very happy with. Despite that, I still found its size a bit cumbersome. This year I began using a Canon PowerShot SD 1300is and am extremely happy with it. It is just the right size, easy to use, priced good, and also has good macro qualities. It may be worth checking out for you.
"LIVE FREE OR DIE...DEATH IS NOT THE WORST OF ALL EVILS." Gen. John Stark. "by reason of much foule weather and Extreme Bad Woods to travel in..." From the letter of my Great Uncle, Samuel Willard (accompanied by my grandfather Henry), to Governor Dummer on August 16, 1725, explaining the reason for his return, being instructed to "range all the country", of the Wawobadenik (White Mountains) July 19-August 16, 1725. I am a 13th generation New Englander and proud of it.
