Christmas Day, Mom and I took a little drive. We were going ... I'm not sure where ... but then Mom sort of zigged when she should have zagged and we ended up on this road that drives across a huge dam! It was really cool! We eventually turned around and pulled over to look around; that's when she shot that picture of me that I showed you Tuesday. An iPhone pic. She forgot the camera. If she had remembered it, I'd have posted pix of the GORGEOUS bald eagles that we saw flying around!!! They were AWESOME and HUGE!!!! We decided we needed to come back another day with said camera, to try to get some photos of the eagles. That explains Wednesday's photo.
We parked at a little pull-over place and got out and looked around. No eagles. I thought we should do some exploring anyway; Mom was game!
|Zimmle Mawson, Explorer Pup!
Oh. Yeah. See that yellow thing? Well, I'm Zimmle Mawson, Explorer Pup, and I won't let something like a barricade stop me from exploring this new ocean! Mom looked around and didn't see anyone... so we headed down the road to the shore!
Here we are, about half way down:
It's the HUGEST ocean I've ever seen! Farther down the path, I climbed on these cool rocks.
|"Look at that! How cool! Drift wood!"
Mom did some special effects on this next pic of me:
Pretty cool, don't you think?
We eventually climbed back up the path, then got in the car and drove up to a lookout point. We could see EVERYthing up there! (Except eagles, Mom wanted me to add.)
|"I wonder if that's part of some old castle?"
Isn't it grand? I was pretty sure I'd discovered the remains of some old castle! Stormy said it's actually something called Tuttle Creek Dam ... but maybe it was a castle once upon a time or something! I ran that theory past Dave and he said that sounded right to him.
Dave said he was looking at the Hunt-Lennox Globe that Amber told him about the other day and said there are actually oceans all over the place and I must have discovered one! I'm sure Ammy wouldn't lead him astray. Here's a look at what Dave showed me:
Wowzers! How cool is that?!?!
I looked around a little more to see if I could see any dragons or sea serpents or anything, like on Davy's map ...
There! Off in the distance! Is it ... ?!?!? Oh... Wait.
Not exactly dragons. ...but you never know. They could have been!
We looked around a little more:
Still no dragons (or eagles), so we headed on back to Ao4 HQs. Mom said we'll go back again soon! I can't wait! I'll be sure to fill you in on what we see!
