WHERE’S Wally? Well, the lost walrus is a long way from home in the Arctic Circle, but after a couple of months exploring UK waters he still looks like he’s having a whale of a time on his hols around the British Isles.
And although wildlife groups are keen to get him home, so far he’s resisting all rescue attempts and seems in no wal-rush to leave.
That may be because he’s having so many adventures – which we’re sure he’d love to share with his friends and family back home.
Emily Fairbairn has seen the postcards Wally sent home to the frozen north.
Sun, sea and a specially built pontoon – where did it all go right? Feeling so chillaxed down here in Britain, I can
almost forget about the melting polar ice caps. Almost.
Even so, would love to try a break in Tusk-any next year.
Love, Wally x
Really feel it’s important to spend time with the locals when you’re abroad, you know? We’ve got so much to teach each other.
I learned that they’ve got a famous song round here called I Am The Walrus – and this guy learned what happens when a 2,000lb sea mammal climbs into your dinghy.
Yep, that’s me, partying with the locals. They joked that they were trying to scare me back into the sea – crazy sense of humour, but they love an airhorn out here. Absolutely mad one tonight – put your flippers in the air like you just don’t care!
Gotta come back for a boys’ trip. Tusks On Tour 2022 – put it in the diary now.
So many brilliant activities on offer in the Isles of Scilly.
I saw a sign for a Scenic Boat Trip and thought I’d take a ride. But it seems they don’t like it if you try to board without a ticket, and they shouted at me to blubber off. At least that’s what I think they said. Think I’m getting too long in the tooth for this sort of caper.
I thought I was boat-body ready but I’ve been branded a vandal by cruel trolls who say I’m too heavy for a dinghy.
But then, what can I do about my dangerous curves? Each year I have to fatten up to cope with the Arctic winter and once that’s over, just you try finding a gym north of Svalbard. (If you can, you’ll get my seal of approval.)
W Walrus, The Sea
Hands up if you’re having the holiday of a lifetime! OK, it’s flippers up in my case, but you get the idea.
Weather’s great, there’s not a pesky polar bear in sight to spoil the day and these slipways are great for basking in the sunshine – when the humans aren’t launching their boats down them. One missed me by a whisker yesterday.
Fish – sorry, wish – you were here.
I don’t want to brag, but a few people round here have started saying I’m a star and a famous face.
Or maybe they were saying I had a star . . . on my face. Not quite sure. Either way, it seems your Wally is managing to make some big waves among the Brits.
Just wait until they see what I can do with a sea urchin.
All the best, Wal Of Fame
