Amber had just done one of her "behind the back" maneuvers. She learned that from great-brother Booter; it's a herding thing. It's her way of paying homage to him.
We walked a long time, then we came to another side road. Dad said it goes up to a new office building and did we want to go up there or just keep going straight? We opted to go up - of course! Here's Am, heading up the hill.
Anyone who thinks Kansas is flat needs to look at these pictures! Amber was worried that the road just went up and up and up and went into the sky ... but she was brave and kept going. Pretty soon, we all had the office building in our sights!
Dad, Zim, Am, Dave and me, heading to the office building
Dave went over to the edge of the parking lot (or is that a "barking lot", Marvin?) and said, "Hey. I think we've been here before."
Here's a closer look at what he saw.
It was incredible! I remembered being there, too - it wasn't just Dave having déjà vu ! Click this link for a post we made almost a year ago! We were there before this was built! Cool!
Then we headed to the other end of the barking lot (ha roo roo rooo!) and had a great panoramic view facing east. We saw part of the castle from above ... AND we saw our house!
That's the far end of the castle from what we showed you last time. It has three different turrets on it - cool, huh? Dad said we were going down there next! It was totally exciting!
This was our approach. If you look out in the distance, you can sort of see the big road by those pine trees. That's where we took that first picture of the castle that we showed you the other day. You can see the other short turret ...
...and then LOOK! Here we all are at the BIG turret!
After we posed for a few pictures, we headed home.
Here are Dave and me, going down the home stretch. See the horizon, out beyond those houses? That's where we had been. All we have to do now is turn left on our street, and we're good to go.
Dave was a bit tired, as you can see. Our big loop route was probably 4 miles or so. It was great fun. It was all we could do to have a short Zoomie session when we got home, then settle in for naps.
Holly? Are you there?
He didn't see her, so he took a nap, too. She must not have gone to the game.
Hope you enjoyed our Giant Walk as much as we did!
