Serene Scenery Sunday

Woo, everypup and everycat.  It's me - Dave!  This week's Serene Scenery Sunday post is all about my very first trip to that Tuttle Creek Dam/Ocean place Zim has told you about!!!  I couldn't believe my pointy ears when I heard Mom say I could go!  Are you ready to hit the beach?  Let's go!!!

Here I am down on the path that runs along the shore.

Me.  Dave!  At the Tuttle Creek Dam/Ocean!

Isn't that cool?  My very first time there!  It was everything Zim said it would be!  I snoofed all kinds of great smells and saw all sorts of stuff like the dam/ocean, that castle thing, and the buffalo.  (They still haven't moved, by the way...)

Know what else I saw? A duck! Check him out:

Isn't he cool? We saw a bunch just like him earlier in the day at the Kansas Ocean. I wonder if they followed us?

Oh, yeah. "Us". Guess who else was there?

"Are you guys coming?"

Yep. My dad! But guess who else?  Guess who was trying to make friends with the du... making sure the duck wasn't going to jump us?

"But he's a cute little guy!  We could bring him home and let him live in the bathtub!"

Yep!  Zimmie!!!

Mom told Zim they needed to catch up with me and Dad.  Too bad.  He really liked that duck!  Maybe the next time we walk down to the Kansas Ocean he'll be down there and Zim can invite him over to the house.

Anyway - here we are, checking out the surf conditions:

It was a pretty calm day. I couldn't see any waves at all.

After we turned around to go back, Mom jumped way ahead of us guys so she could get this cool action shot of us:

Zimmie, Dad and me.

We had a great walk - and I sure hope you enjoyed coming with us.  The Tuttle Creek Dam/Ocean is not only as cool as Zim promised, it's a mighty serene place, as well!

Luv,
Dave

  1. Nice trip, a good place to visit. A guy who lives near a lake where we live has buffalo too and both my Mom and I like to look at them.
    We also have quackers all over the place, they are everywhere, and big Canadian Honker geese, so we have some things in common about where we live.

    Kisses,

  6. Dave, we're glad you got to visit the Tuttle Creek Ocean! It looks very pretty there and we're glad the waves were calm so the duck didn't get tossed around.
