Serene Scenery Sunday

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  Before I get to the serene part of today's post -- was anyone else's breakfast served late this morning?  I've heard murmurings that it wasn't just mine and Maggie's; I'm wondering just how widespread this abomination is.  Let me know.

Anyway, after our rather late breakfast, we went on a lovely walk with Mom and Dad.  Mags and I thought we'd show you some shots Mom took during the walk for Serene Scenery Sunday -- and then a little bonus.

It's a beautiful, crisp Fall day here in Kansas! We walked and walked ...

"I love this route!"
"So do I!"

... and ended up going past the Kansas Ocean!

It looks lovely this time of year, doesn't it? Oh. And can you see the Great Blue Heron that was celebrating the fact that Mom only had her iPhone and not the big bazooka camera?  Right smack in the middle there.  Maybe you can see him better in this next shot!

"Yeah, yeah.  'Birdie'.  Got it, Mom."
"Whatever.  I'm bored."

He's right between Maggie and me in that photo. How's this?

"I hear something over that way!"
"Me, too."

Anyway, Mom and Dad loved seeing him, even if Mom couldn't get a decent shot of him. We had a great rest of the walk, then were ready to chill out for a while. Dad proposed he and Mom head out to Tuttle Creek for a quick trip! We stayed here to  take a nap  guard the house.

On the way to Tuttle, they stopped by the KSO - and guess who was still there?!?

"Heeeeeere, fishie, fishie, fishie!!!"

Mom was surprised and delighted!

She has only had time to process one of her camera shots from Tuttle, but here are some landscape shots she took with her iPhone.

Doesn't it look serene out there?  Pretty soon, Mags and I will be able to go out there with Mom and Dad!!!

And finally, one of the camera shots. Look at who was fishing in Willow Lake:

You don't think it was the same guy who was at the Kansas Ocean, do you?

I hope you have a wonderfully serene Sunday!

Cammie!

  7. We made sure we got our breakfast on time today, well on time per OUR schedule. Apparently the Momster wasn't too pleased with us.

    What a glorious day today was!!! Look at those skies and all your beautiful photos. We wish we could get to visit that Kansas Ocean - it sure looks nice there.

  10. What a grreat walk you had! My breakfast was definitely NOT late on Sunday. It was extra early, because Momma had to get out and go for a loooooong run. We were hauled out of bed at the crack of dawn to walk and then settled into our crates with our toys and our breakfast.
