Serene Scenery Sunday

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie, here with Serene Scenery Sunday!  Cam and I took Mom on a lovely walk this morning, and we thought the scenes we saw might help you feel nice and serene!  Are you ready to go?  I'll try to keep the chit-chat to a minimum.

The first thing of note was our sunrise.

That was actually a little earlier in the day.  We saw that, then had breakfast.

Anyway ... we went down this street...

... then up the hill!

It's the same hill we walked up when we went to the park the other day! When we got to the entrance to the Hudson Trail, I posed on the rocks, while Cammie sat patiently:

Sorry about my leash on Cam's nose. Ha roo roo roo!

Anyway, today, we got to go down the trail!!! I zigged to the left:

And I zagged to the right:

Cammie calmly walks in a straight line. Is it just me, or is that odd?

Anyway -- we got to the entrance to the next part of the trail, and I asked if we could go down there.  Mom said, "YES!"

"Can we?  Please?"

It was great! For some reason, I got put on a short leash, while Cam was given plenty of slack.

I have no idea what that was all about.

Here's an un-related photo.  No, really.  No relation to anything.  Look just off-center.

See the squirrel?

We got to walk yet another segment of the trail, too!!! Here's a nice shot of Cam:

"Hello, everyone!"

I ... was still on a short leash. I promised Mom I wouldn't pull as hard, and she let up.

"Check those trees, Cam!  There are bound to be more squirrels up there!"
"Oh, Mags!"

At the end of that part of the trail, we turned up one of the streets. I struck a pose at my favorite corner:

Cammie has a favorite hill she likes to walk up. Today, rather than walking up it, we walked down it - which Mom said is much more serene. Here's our view going down:

When we got to the bottom, Mom thought she heard geese honking, so we took a detour and walked over to the Kansas Ocean.

If you look very closely, you can see geese swimming in the ocean! After we left, they took flight - and flew right over us! It was really cool!

I hope you feel nice and serene now! Have a wonderful afternoon!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  7. What a lovely walk! I don't know why your momma was so mean, putting you on a short leash. Sheesh! I think it's age discrimination!
