Serene Scenery Sunday

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie!  I got to go to the Kansas Ocean the other day with my mom!  We saw so many wonderful things that I thought I'd share them all with you for Serene Scenery Sunday.  It was so peaceful and beautiful there - this is the next best thing to having all of you with me.  Let's go!

Oh.  Wait!  On the way there, guess what we saw?!?  Wild Turkeys!  (DINNER!)  We saw TEN of them!  (LOTS OF DINNER!)  Mom put a bunch of pix of them in our FlickR bird set, but here are my favorites.

This is the Disapproving Turkey:

Disapproving Turkey disapproves.

I don't think he liked us.

This guy bringing up the rear made us laugh:

"Oh, for the love of cranberries!   I think I stepped in something.  Oh, ewww!"

We got to the Kansas Ocean and went all the way down to the shoreline.  We paused there to take everything in.


Oh.  You might think I'm looking the wrong way, but I'm not.  There were men building a house over across the field and I thought I should keep an eye on them.  Besides, I saw a couple of the landscapers look at me and smile, so I thought I should smile back at them.  Smiles are contagious, you know!

There were wildflowers everywhere!  Here are just a few of the ones we saw:

Sunflowers sparkling against the water

A thistle collecting butterflies

One lone sunflower

And more sunflowers sparkling against the water!

OK.  Let's go see what else we can see.  We'll head up to the boardwalk.


Oh. Wait.

Another sunflower

Can you tell Mom really likes sunflowers of all shapes and sizes?

Now let's head out on the boardwalk!


We crossed over the street and checked out the far side of the transoceanic bridge!


Mom was looking for birdies down in the shady creek area down there, but didn't see any.

We crossed back over and I checked out the boardwalk side of the transoceanic bridge:

"Hello, down there!?!"

Nothing remarkable down there, either - but it was fun!

Let's keep going.


It was a great day to be at the ocean! A little cooler than it's been, a slight breeze going, and a beautiful blue sky! One quick pose before we head home, OK?


What a great day at the ocean!  I hope you enjoyed coming with us and that you feel all relaxed and serene!  Have a great Sunday!

  11. We're thinking Disapproving Turkey was disapproving of your thoughts about him and dinner. But we LOVE turkey dinner. I think we're going to have to zip over to Kansas and pick us up some dinner!

    Beautiful photos, and an awesome walkie - as always!

  12. What gorgeous photos of your day, Cammie. I adore the quizzical turkey (but my Labs would've gone insane over a turkey - they would've ignored the construction workers!).

    I also LOVED the one last pose!!!!

    And along the way - the wildflowers were spectacular.

  13. What a great time you had and such beautiful photos, Cammie! Those turkey are too funny!

    Love ya lots♥

  14. I feel so totally serene now, Camo! Thanks a lot for sharing. Now maybe those turkey will come back and we can have them for dinner. As guests, of course! }:)
