Serene Scenery Sunday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats!  It's me, Zim, here with Serene Scenery Sunday!  Are you ready to find your inner Zen of Zim Zone?  Then how about you come along with me to Tuttle Creek Dam/Ocean to do a little bird watching?

That's right - Mom and I headed to Tuttle again this week to do some eagle watching.  We had just the best time, taking in all the sights and sounds!  I find it very peaceful there, so I thought I'd share some of our pix with you today.  Let's have a look around, OK?

Me, ocean-side

As you can see, the ocean was starting to melt. We thought it would be the perfect day to see those elusive eagles, what with the better fishing opportunities! I was the first one to see a birdie, and focused in on him. Mom saw what I was staring at, zoomed in with the camera and got this:

Oops. So it's not an eagle; it's a crow. It was still cool and he had found something to munch on out there. Good for him!  Crows have to eat, too!

I spotted more birdies way out on the ocean, swooping in, doing a little fishing! Let's have a look at them!

Hmm. Also not eagles; they're gulls. And where do gulls hang out? Right - at the OCEAN. I just thought it was good to have confirmation that this really IS an ocean and not just some man-made reservoir. Err... because SEAgulls wouldn't hang out at one of those. Right? Of course!

We bird-watched down there at the shoreline for quite some time, then Mom said we needed to hike back up the path and head home. Hikes are soothing, too, so no loss of serenity there. Here I am, almost at the top:

It was nice to see our car ready and waiting for us.

I hope you're in your Zen of Zim Zone now.  Happy Serene Scenery Sunday!

  3. That was an actual ocean for sure. Of course we have those sea birds here too. They seem to like the Stop and Shop parking lot. Thanks for the sunny photos.


  4. Very nice! How big is your ocean?


  5. Do you know Zimmie, I wouldn't be at all surprised if you had seen a polar bear when the ocean was frozen there.


  6. Happy Serene Sunday to all of you!
    The water there looks pawesome!
    Kisses and hugs

  7. What a lovely serene Sunday you had with mom! Bird watching can be fascinating...and mom watching us watch birds can be quite interesting too :)
    Our Sunday wasn't as serene...I must say...as a little skunk...blew it's you-know-what at me around midnight last night... well, today has been countless baths, carpet cleanings, and airing outs of sorts... Oh joy.
    Great to see you!

    Sweet hugs,
