Marmee and the Kitten Bowl

Anyone know what time the Kitten Bowl starts?

marmee278-blogMarmee’s been asking.

She’s practicing all her moves, gettin’ loosened up.

marmee279-blogmarmee280-blog‘Round the ‘hood… they call her Quick.

marmee281-blog“Quick on the PAW”.

marmee284-blogYep.

marmee285-blogThat’s her.

marmee285-blogBest of all? I think it’s an early start for today’s game.

So it won’t interfere with Naptime Halftime.

The Charming Gull

I’ve never understood those who say they don’t like seagulls.

seagull15-blogGulls are some of my favorite models.

Always ready to strike a pose.

seagull17-blogAlways up to something. As if they know some secret.

Maybe they learned something as baby gulls. Something they never forgot about having FUN.

Even if it’s just time to catch some dinner.

seagull12-blogSeagulls are always the first ones up in the morning, eager to get at it!

seagull16-blogAnd I happen to know they can do a pretty mean two-step, if given a little encouragement that is.

seagull10-blogAnd while it’s true they may not always see eye to eye…

seagull4-blogseagull3b-blogSeagulls always seem to find a way to patch things up in the end.

Blog-Seagull7I, personally…

Find seagulls to be rather reflective.

And to me, perfectly charming.

seagull19-blogThanks for visiting me here at Images of Cape Cod! And fly high!

Monday Morning Cure

It’s Marmee Monday, and she’s dying to share her cure for the Monday Morning Blues!

For starters, you need to jump up and greet the day. And remember, NO FEAR.Blog-Marmee119

Breathe deeply, open those nasal passages and feel those stress lines just slip away…

Blog-Marmee150

Next, a gentle chin massage…

Blog-Marmee294

A couple of eye rolls…

Blog-Marmee188

And don’t forget the ears, too. A little to the left, please.

Next, it’s time for a few yoga stretches…

Time to head into the studio to see what’s on deck for today!

Don’t forget to check the stock…

And keep your eyes open for when the UPS man is in the ‘hood.

Blog-Marmee306

You should have time for just one more yoga stretch…

Marmee102

And a greaaaat big yawn!

Marmee92

You have DONE it! You have chased away those Monday Morning Blues and are ready now to face the day!

Marmee59

Or… hmmmm…

Marmee96

Marmee did tell me that her cure can sometimes cause occasional drowsiness.

Please let me know how it works for you, and I’ll be sure to pass it along to her.

Shhhh…. After her nap, of course.

Sunday – Best of 6

Hi everybody, it’s time again for Sunday Best!

We had a lot of worthy candidates this week, and here they all are…

Contestant #1, the Seagull, standing tall, ever proud. (Hoping that the wedding party on the beach will be feeling generous with their shrimps and dips!)

Blog-SundayBest1

Contestant #2, Little Foal.  Meeting his shadow for the very first time…

Blog-SundayBest2

Contestant #3,  a juvenile Yellow Crowned Night Heron, fishing along the muddy banks at Mill Landing. A rare treat in these parts!

Blog-SundayBest3

Contestant #4,  it’s Prayer Rabbit’s baby sister, Sam. It sure looks like she’s got something BIG to tell us!

Blog-SundayBest4

Contestant #5 is a pair entry. Meet Ribbit and Peeps, getting into position and ready to Do-Si-Do for you!

Blog-SundayBest5

And finally, Contestant #6, the statuesque Great Blue Heron. Ahhh, such a gentleman. And a sight for sore eyes all summer long after the harsh winter that took so many.

Blog-SundayBest6

And there you have it. Please cast your vote for your favorite, and as always – I love your comments too!  🙂

‘Til next time, thanks for visiting me here at Images of Cape Cod!

Sunday Best… With a Few Hiccups

Good morning and welcome once again to Sunday Best here at Images of Cape Cod!

We have a terrific lineup for you today so let’s get started.

Contestant #1, this lovely Mute Swan seen gliding down the Mill Landing channel – a stunning image of white perfection with bright orange bill (and knob) and black “silk stocking” legs.

Blog-ForestBeachLoop95

Contestant #2, an exquisite female Mallard seen bathing in Red River with all her gal pals.

The essence of beauty, this lady with the prettiest deep purple splash of feathers just wouldn’t stand still for a pose.

So we named her Diva Duck. Lovingly, of course.

Blog-Bird42B

Our adorable Prayer Rabbit who’s been working very hard this week to get us some cooler air.

(We think he’s got connections.)

Blog-ForestBeachLoop508

Then we have Harry, the Black Backed Gull who…

Blog-ForestBeachLoop481

Hold on a moment, folks, Harry, come on Harry, let’s go!

Blog-ForestBeachLoop483

Harry, you look fine, perfect even, let’s GO!  We’ve got people waiting to vote!

Blog-ForestBeachLoop480

Alright Harry, this is your last call, “Strike a POSE”! There you go!

Uh, well, I guess even the BACK side is better than nothing!

Blog-ForestBeachLoop484

And last but not least, we have Contestant #5, this charming red-capped fellow all in fluorescent green with red flag.

He’s been doing his darnedest to get his message across to some of our speedy Cape Cod visitors.

Blog-ForestBeach33

And there you have them, our lineup for today.

Please pick your favorite and add him/her to the Reply box, and thank you!

Enjoy your Sunday!!
