Photo Finish Friday: The Week In Walks

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  For Photo Finish Friday, I thought I'd share some random pictures of us out on some of the walks we took this week.  Ready to get going?  Come with us!

This is me and Maggie going up a hill in the neighborhood:

Nothing that exciting happened until we got just a tad further along - and then -- ALERT!!!

Cam And Maggie - BIRDIE alert!
"BIRDIE!"
"BIRDIE!"

I don't think you can see her, but in the rocks by that lamp post? There was a Killdeer putting on an award-winning performance. She said, "I'm helpless and I'm dying! Pay no attention to my two little peeps across the street. Take me! I'm helpless!" It was VERY well done! This is what Killdeers do to protect their babies (who were adorable, according to my "why-did-I-leave-the-camera-at-home-Mom) and I must say, as someone who has been a mom myself, I find it rather admirable! Good job, Mrs. Killdeer! I made sure Maggie and Mom left the babies alone. And we left Mrs. Killdeer alone, too.

Here I am, on another walk:

"Have a nice rest of your walk!"

See those people down there? They had a very handsome Australian Shepherd with them. We all got to the intersection at the same time, so after an exchange of pleasantries, we hung back and let them get ahead of us. They were really nice - and the Aussie was very well-mannered. And handsome.  They complimented Maggie and me on our manners, which pleased Mom greatly.

Here is a shot of me and Maggie arriving back home on Memorial Day:

In this picture, we're walking out in the street:

Sometimes we do that if someone else is coming toward us on the sidewalk or if the grass is really long in a yard. All part of Mom's "let's avoid ticks, fleas, and snakes" campaign. Whatever!

On one of the routes we take, some people put a nice retaining wall around their garden. They did a really nice job. Here I am, taking a quick break:

"Nice and shady, too!"

One morning this week, we all four went on a nice, long walk to and through CiCo Park. Here us Sibes are with Dad:

Dad, Maggie, and me!

We've been down the Hudson Trail a few times this week - here's Maggie on the first leg of the trail:

And finally, here are Maggie and me arriving back at Ao4 Headquarters after a fun walk with Mom:

"Come on in!  Drinks are on me!"

Thanks for coming with us! Tomorrow we'll show you what we do after our walks!

Cammie!

  2. It is nice when you get to walk in an older neighborhood with all the big trees - gives a lot more shade :)
