Serene Scenery Sunday

Greetings to all, it's me, Maggie, here with Serene Scenery Sunday!  Yesterday was such a great day! I went on an early morning walk with my dad before breakfast, then another one with Cam and Mom after we ate.  In the afternoon, it was still cool enough for a walk - so we all went again!!!  It was wonderful!  Mom took her camera along, so I thought I'd share the beauty of what we saw with you!  Ready?

The first cool thing we saw was fishies!  In Little Kitten Creek!  Take a look:

Fishies!!!

No wonder we sometimes see a Great Blue Heron in there! (Not yesterday, though. The birds put the word out that Mom had the Canon with us. I don't think we saw one single birdie!)

We saw a lot of sunflowers:

"Look!  Sunflowers!"
"Wait!  I thought I heard a cicada!"

Here's a close-up:

It was breezy out; can you tell?

We saw lots of other wildflowers, too!

Since Mom was going in for close-ups, I thought I would, too:

"Oooh!  Nice!"

Dad took both of our leashes for a bit, so Mom could get some pix of us looking at the camera.

We were more interested in the scenery!

Just when she was about to give up, Mom got this shot:

Me and Cam, soaking in all the beauty!

Mom took individual portraits at this point!  Here's a very happy, beautiful Cammie:

"I love going on family outings!"

And here I am:

"I love family adventures, too!"

On the way home, we stopped a few times - once for a water break, then up near the roundabout for a quick pose:

Cam, Dad, and me.  Dad's the tall one.

We also stopped in the shade by the Grand Mère Village sign and posed quite nicely:

Mom said these pix remind her of a photo she took of Dad with Lucky and Jesse, our great sisters, when they were in France.  (Click here to see.)

OK - one more shot, then let's get going!

It was a great walk!  We hope you enjoyed coming with us and seeing all the beautiful things!!!  Have a wonderful Sunday.

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
