 Issa , " We went to one of our favourite parks. It was warm out but very windy!"

 Issa , " Here in the open space , the wind tossed my ears around like dancers dancing the cha-cha."

 Issa , " When my ears stopped dancing , I decided to go to a platform where I had a bettter view of the geese."

 Issa , " The snow geese are here for the winter months and they frequent this park as their winter home."

 Duffy, " We are very well behaved in front of the snow geese!"

 Issa and Duffy, " We use our eyes but not our mouths! And absolutely no chasing or moving from our fixed spots!"

 Duffy, " But we can lick our chops!"

Issa and Duffy, " Hundreds of snow geese come to Vancouver , Canada every winter."

 Issa and Duffy, " Aren't they fantastical and spellbinding? Like magical characters found in fairy tales of days of old. "

Issa , " Did you notice what the plaque on the bench where my ears danced , read? " And I say to myself , it's a wonderful world."

Have a Marvelous Monday.
See you soon.

  1. We love your dancing ears! :-)

    And those snow geese...not something we see here. Lots of Canada geese, though.

    That plaque is fantastic, words to remember this week, and always.

  2. Oh wow, I don't know how you stayed still with all those gooses to chase!!!

  3. What a great plaque and just the right words on it having seen your wonderful pictures.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  4. Good thing you didn't chase those geese--they can be mean if they have babies! We're glad you got to enjoy some time outdoors. We're back to cold weather. At least we don't have any snow now.

  5. What a great outing! Your wind-blown ears are fabulous,, Issa!


  6. Great pictures! You two are so well behaved to have not chased the geese! It's so nice to see everyone out and about, enjoying this "wonderful world."

  7. That is such a wonderful saying. We like that. Those geese sure are gorgeous. What fun to see so many. Those ears sure were doing a fancy dance. Hope all of you have a great day.

  8. Oh it IS a wonderful world! Love those flying ears!

  9. We loved to see your ears fly ! We have never seen so many geese ever (to tell the truth, we have never seen a goose !). Purrs

  10. We are also fans of the flying ears!! MOL

  11. OMC! We thought you two were gonna take off!

  12. Oh Wow! That park looks familiar! Mes thinks that Mommy used to walk our hairy slobbery sister Kokanee when we lived in Vancouver!
    Is not the geese wonderful!

  13. What a terrific outing, Issa and Duffy! We love love love your flying ears!

    We saw the snow geese in Quebec, but it looks like you had a much closer vantage point than we did. :)


  14. You two are so well-behaved, just watching and not chasing or barking. That was a gorgeous scene and we loved seeing dancing ears. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
