Who We Are

In Conclusion

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  We hope you've enjoyed following the Case of the Missing Ocean.  It's not every day we have a mystery of this magnitude here at Ao4 Headquarters!  We are really thankful our FBI (Feline Bureau of Investigation) friend, Teddy Westlife, was willing to travel all the way over here from Australia to help us solve the case!

When we left off yesterday, we were all at the scene of the crime.  The Kansas Ocean was missing - that much we could all see.  Teddy was going to do some further exploring, and Mags and I were going to go home, think deep thoughts, then meet up with him later.  That afternoon, Maggie and I went back to see what our special agent friend had come up with.

"Teddy?  Are you out there?  Special Agent Westlife?!?"
"Down here on the shoreline!"

He's down there on the right - behind some weeds, right in that big shadow.  Can you see him?  He has great camouflage!

He said he had done lots of observing - mostly he saw men with trucks and digging machines, but also some birdies.  He tried very hard not to get distracted by the birdies.  Here's a shot of him up on the beach over looking everything before we got there:

"Another truck full!  Interesting!"

He said they filled up truck after truck with dirt and mud, then hauled it off somewhere.  At first, he thought maybe they were putting in another sea-side casino, but they always put the road in first, and there's no road over on the other side of the defunct ocean.  He said he had reached his conclusion and was ready to tell us.  Mom thought we should all pose for a photo to mark the occasion.  Here we all are on the Boardwalk:

"I can't even look."
"Are you quite through, Aunt Karen?"
"This is so serious.  I'm bracing myself for bad news."
"Oh, c'mon.  One photo.  Could you all just look at the camera and smile?"

Anyway ...

It's Teddy's conclusion that they're replacing the original Kansas Ocean with an even bigger, better one!  He said it should be ready in a few months -- that oceans just aren't born overnight.

Wow.  That's mighty exciting.  I sure hope he's right; we know the birdies will really enjoy that!

And with that, we end the Case of the Missing Ocean.  Thanks so much for following along!

  2. Wow, that Teddy is very good at his work. Do you think he could put in a good word with those engineers to also build a connecting canal to OP and extend the Kansas Ocean to this side of the state?
