Digging to New Zealand

Digging to New Zealand

Trial dig to New Zealand

Had a good long ponder about my swimming adventure yesterday and decided that it would be quicker and easier to dig to New Zealand instead.

So, started off in the sandy part of the park and spent 20 minutes this morning burrowing a massive hole.  Didn’t discover a tunnel through to hobbit land but my digging revealed a bounty of treasure.  I found:

  • Two tennis balls
  • Three poo bags with poo still in them – yuk
  • Part of a bat wing
  • A baby’s dummy

All in all a good selection, especially the dummy which I chewed in half and ate the rubber sucky part.

My trial explorations concluded that despite my technique, digging is much slower than swimming so I need a better plan to get to NZ before the end of the year.  Watch this space…

    Hmmmm okay Ruby …perhaps a canoe? you can stock up on plenty of stinky food,fish and swim off the side rest when needed and use a stick to paddle…not that I am aiding and abetting in the delinquency of a Labrador….;)

      Excellent idea – hadn’t thought on being on the water. It just might work!

    Hi Ruby
    I was given some cardboard wings last christmas (very stylish) that I can loan you – I never worked out how to use them, but I still have the instructions…..

      Good idea Charlie – always want to look the part. When can I try them out?

    Perseverance Ruby–that as Jack Henry suggests some extra snacks-the better to think out your plan-

      Thanks, although too many snacks might make me too big to squeeze through!
