New Discovery, Part II or III

Hey, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim, back to tell you more about my cool, new discovery!   I posted Part I  on Tuesday ... and really Part II was sort of on Wordless Wednesday, so let's call this Part III.  Maybe I should back up and start at the beginning!

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!

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:

here be dragons

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 ...

"Hey!  Any of you dragon guys around?!!?"

There! Off in the distance! Is it ... ?!?!? Oh... Wait.

Buffalo.  Roaming.

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!

Play bows,


  1. Lewis and Clark and Zimmie - sounds perfect to us. Great discovery.

  2. What a great adventure! did woo know that all the oceans of the world also connect, so maybe if woo discover a new one, we could all swim over to visit? Or maybe no, ha-roo roo roo! thanks fur sharing your cool adventure, Zimmel Mawson. We'll keep an eye out fur those sead dragons over here, too.

  4. WOW Zimmie! You and your Mom really had a great adventure! I think you really DID find a new ocean! I know there is an ocean here in CT, but I have not seen it yet. Do you think woo could find it if you were here? (I bet you could!) I love reading about all of your adventures.
    We love all of the Ao4 and wish you all a healthy, Happy and blessed New Year!
    Love to you all!

  5. That is a very cool place! It looks much more exciting than your other ocean! Thanks for taking us along on your expedition!

  6. That is a cool discovery Zimmie! You got really close to that ocean! We have to let you know though that back a really long time ago, we think Columbus was still around even, our mommy used to go to the lookout point you were at. Her family lives near where you went up so every holiday the family tradition was to walk from their house up to that lookout point. So, your disovery is very timely in bringing back wonderful memories for her about her grandma and grandpa and of her family that still live there. :)

  7. Most excellent expedition! I've heard that the dragons exist in the place that some maps call 'North Dakota' - there is nothing else up there except dragons; they just made up that state to hide the fact that that is where all the dragons are!

    Happy New Year!
