Serene Scenery Sunday

Ha roo, pups and cool cats.  It's me, Zim, here with some gorgeous scenery guaranteed to help you find your inner serenity!  Ready to take a look around?

Let's start with one of our beautiful Kansas sunsets!

Isn't that breathtaking? God does amazing work!

The day after that sunset, it was windy and cold as can be - so Mom bundled up and we drove out to one of my favorite places! Can you guess where? Here's a hint:

OK, that's a mighty good hint. It's the Tuttle Creek Dam/Ocean! What better place to be on a blustery day! I haven't featured it on Serene Scenery Sunday for a while, so I thought we'd share the views with you!

Built in to the other side of the plaque I'm posing by is a cool stone bench where you can enjoy a great look around.

That's our car behind me; obviously we hadn't walked very far yet!

You can see a lot from up there! Right out this way ...

... is the water. There's a stone wall in front of the big hill that leads down to it. Let's take a look!

If you're tall like me, and like some bipeds, you can see over the wall; if not, you can peek around it:

Tuttle Creek sure is pretty, isn't it? And check out that gorgeous blue sky!

We walked down by the water for a little bit ...

It was an incredible adventure - and sure helped me find that Zen of Zim zone!

That evening, we had another spectacular sunset! Check it out:

Oh, that's not what you think out there - it's just a crazy cloud formation!  Sure had the bipeds around here doing some double-takes, though!

Have a soothing, serene Sunday, everyone!

Play bows,
Zim

  10. What a beautiful place you went to. And all that lovely water....I don't know how you didn't just run down and jump right in...

    I bet some of your friends thought that was a tornado startin up. Gotta watch those Kansas clouds.

    Be safe and play hard.

  11. That is even bigger than the Kansas Ocean! Wow! I bet there are monsters in there for sure.

    As for those clouds, my momma says she would run for cover if she saw something like that. We almost never see the horizon around here what with all the trees and such.
