An update on Larry Lays-Two-Eggs continued journey.
For the entire duration of Larry Lays-Two-Eggs stay, he kept his travel log diary fully updated. I expect that we will have a few differences of opinions, so while Larry is in transit, I’m going to tell the world my version of the story first.
Finding a rubber chicken stuck in the sands is not an every day occurrence. It can be quite shocking. Once the cries of desperation identified himself as Larry Lays-Two-Eggs from oopoomoo, I started digging in and between each wave crashing ashore. With a rising tide, time was of the essence.
Once freed from the grasping quick sand hands of Prince Edward Island’s north shore, Larry was in shock and not thinking clearly. Cold and wet, Larry ran up and down the beach like a chicken with its head cut off. As I watched in disbelief as he dodged in and around the marram grass that covers the coastal dunes, Larry tripped on some fishing line and trapped himself in an abandoned lobster trap wreck.
Larry was a mess and had sand in every crack of his body. He needed a warm bath and some relaxation after his journey across the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. He was finally starting to calm down and kick back the shock of a rough few days at sea.
For the next several weeks, Larry traveled around Prince Edward Island as my side kick – making a permanent home in the side of the camera bag. It was front row seats for many sunrises and sunsets. It was a tour of champions.
Needing to stretch and have some alone-time, Larry ventured off on his own and found a nice little perch of drift wood looking out over the Northumberland Strait.
Something must have spooked him during that time because he took off in an Olympic record setting sprint. And of course not learning his lesson, again found himself entangled in an old abandoned lobster trap. Unfortunately for Larry, this trap did not have the safety of the dunes as he soon realized just how quickly the tide rushes in. Another rescue was in order.
The rescue dog was set loose and an adoption was made.
This adoption was not all fun and games and at times, it looked painful!
This didn’t sit well with Larry and one night he snuck out an unlocked window looking to make his own adventure. What Larry did not know is that weather changes quickly and going to bed with a backyard of grass can quickly be covered in snow by morning. We found Larry the next morning, feet frozen, and in need of a third rescue.
It was a painful surgery to recovery Larry’s feet but it had to happen.
Larry could no longer be trusted and we were required to hire a Nanny to babysit. Larry spent the last few days enjoying some early Christmas quiet time before we officially sent him on his way across the country for his next adventure.
Where will Larry end up next? If you find him, keep an eye on him – he’s a quick and an unpredictable little bugger.
