Quite some time ago I first met Henrietta, a chicken in search of her long lost uncle, Larry-Lays-Two-Eggs. I told the story of our meeting over at the Oopoomoo blog, and it can be found here. While Henrietta has grown quite comfortable on Vancouver Island, she has not given up her quest to find her long lost uncle. Recently, she searched high and low at Gordon’s Beach and even tried to recruit a passer-by to help, but in the end she knew it was up to her alone to find him.

Of course, she couldn’t resist checking under some driftwood and searching every nook and cranny on her way up the beach.
As she left the beach, she had to cross more debris. This time it was a creosote coated wooden pole, with rusty old metal pieces sticking out of it. She paused, one last time, turned back to the beach and cried out to let Larry-Lays-Two-Eggs know that her search would not end until she found him. Even if it meant more travel…
