Ha roo all you pups and cool-cats - and the occasional biped who stops by, too. It's me, Zimmie, here with Amber to tell you about our trip back to the Kansas Ocean. Thursday was a killer here - in the upper 60s and sunny. Knowing that for some bizarre reason our mom prefers that sort of thing to say, today's weather (a dusting of snow on the ground and currently at 6 degrees F), Am and I let her hook us up - and we were off to the beach!
Here I am, heading across the wild prairie.
Does anyone know what these seed-pod things are?
Did anyone respond with "tasty"? I find them irresistible. This doesn't please Mom. Here's a look at how plentiful they are:
So it's not like I'm trying to eat the last one or anything. Any of the gardening bipeds out there know what those are?
On the horizon out there, you can see one of our golf courses. Dad plays there a lot, but he was at a different one that day. Mom took lots of "scenic" shots; we'll share some of those with you tomorrow. Oh, yeah - and see that dark cloud just above the horizon on the right? That thing followed us everywhere! More shots of that in future posts!
Here's Ammy, heading down one of the hills.
Oh, I know what you're thinking, but we DO have hills here! We're in the Flint Hills! Turn around and see what we came down:
Pretty cool, isn't it? The picture doesn't do the incline justice. I don't know why Mom doesn't take us home back up that way!
We did some exploring once we got down to the ocean. There are SO many cool smells down there! After we did lots of snoofing around, I convinced Am to do some posing - you saw that great shot of her yesterday, remember!?!? That was one of her poses. I tried one like that, too.
Me - Zim - daydreaming by the Kansas Ocean
Mom took all of these with her iPhone, by the way. She said the challenge, in addition to keeping two Siberians under control (ha roo roo roo!), was that the sun was so bright, she couldn't really see her screen to know what she was getting. Whatever. Here's another shot of Ammy:
Mom wanted to get some shots of us together, and we made it really fun for her. We're thinking Monday we might post the "out takes" - how does that sound? Oh, or maybe Tuesday, because Dave had some excitement Thursday that he wants to share with you, too.
We did give her a couple "nice" shots. Here is one:
Hey, what's that over there?
And as a segue to our next post, Serene Scenery Sunday.... I'll leave you with this one:
Me and Ammy - AH, sweet serenity!
