We've mostly been taking nice, long walks. On the 17th we went with both Mom and Dad. You can see an album at this link, but there aren't any shots of us. That strikes me as odd. The next day, we took just Mom on a long one. We didn't see any cool birds, but Mags and I took a break to pose on the transoceanic bridge:
We couldn't help but think about Zim, as that was one of his most favorite places to go.
The next morning, Maggie took Dad on a long walk to CiCo Park where she broke some rules:
|Look on the wall behind Maggie!|
... and made some new friends:
|"Greetings, Mr. Horse! Have we met?"|
I think Zim would have appreciated both of those pix!
Later that day, we took Mom and Dad on another walk. I saw a huge crow ...
I've never actually eaten crow ... so to speak ...
Anyway, Maggie stopped along the way to strike a pose:
My little one sure is growing up fast, isn't she?
Here's the path we were on:
|Maggie is walking the point with Dad|
Mom and I are bringing up the rear
We often see turkeys in that area - or deer - so I was ready! We didn't see any that day, but check out what we did see:
|"Look, a squirrel friend!"|
Or as Dad called it, a kamikaze squirrel! And we all know what I called it.
|"That little guy can really move, huh, Cammie??!??"|
"Not if I get a hold of it ..."
Sorry. Moving right along ... if you'd like to see more pix from that walk, please click here.
The next day, we sniffed out a new-to-us part of the Hudson Trail:
|"I've never been here before, Aunt Cam!"|
"Nor have I, Maggie!"
It was beautiful ...
On the way home, Maggie rediscovered sprinklers:
|"Oooh! What is -- oh, I remember these!"|
She was just a tad bit smaller last time she checked one out!

On another day, we took Mom on a really fun, eventful walk! Just beyond this bend is where things got interesting:
|"Something's up there, Mags. I can feel it!"|
"I'm on full alert, Cam!"
Want to know what we saw?
There were actually two of them up there - that Tom and a girl he was trying to impress.
Mom posted this collage to her FB page; it pretty much sums things up:
I think Maggie is trying very hard to remember Zim's lessons about making friends with other species. For more photos from that walk, please click here, and for photos from yet another that contain no photos of us but of some wildlife, please click here.
That's a quick run-down of our walks. As you can tell, we've been staying busy and are helping Mom and Dad get plenty of exercise. It helps all of us cope with our loss.
Thanks again for your kind words about Zimmie. We all miss him very much.
