Serene Scenery Sunday

Greetings to all!  It's me, Mags!  Cam and I thought some of the sights and sounds we saw the other day on our morning walk might bring you a bit of serenity.  Ready to take a look?

It was a nice, sunny, cold morning and we decided to take the route that goes past the Kansas Ocean.  Things got most interesting about when we hit the trans-oceanic bridge.

"Cam!  Look on the shoreline!  Gooses!"
"Mmm... gooses!"

They saw us and started honking their horns - I think there was a traffic jam trying to get into the water for some reason!

"Hey, gooses!  Where are you going?"

I'm not sure why they were so anxious to get away from us!

"DINNER!"

Oh.  Well, yeah.  She may have been thinking that, but she was very calm and quiet.  I was, too -- eventually.  Yes, "eventually".  See ... when they honk and stuff, they sound remarkably like squeaky toys!  So, yes.  I got a tad excited at first, then gained my composure and just looked at them.  Here's a short vid Mom shot on her iPhone:

See?  Just like squeaky toys -- am I right?!?  Anyway, once I settled down, Mom took this closeup of one of the geese:

Rather handsome, isn't he?

Cam and I decided to sit and watch them for a while.  I tried my best to feel the serenity.

"Must not think of them as squeaky toys ..."
"Quit squeaking, gooses!  We're trying to be serene here!"

"Much better!  Thanks, Cam!"
"Silly gooses!"

Cam's always got my back!

I hope your day is nice and serene!

Yours sincerely,

  3. Oh, they were taunting you! Living squeeky toys, fur sure. We think you were both very good and showed great restraint.
