High drama in Charlottetown Monday afternoon as Lucy the duck — who made headlines in P.E.I. Earlier this month, for taking up residence at the Atlantic Superstore Garden Centre on University Avenue for the sixth year in a row — was on the move with her brood
.Lucy got her ducks in a row and she, along with her five fuzzy ducklings, trekked from the garden center, through the plaza parking lot on their way to a more permanent water home.
One little duckling, who trailed his mother and siblings most of the way, had to take several breaks. According to a Superstore employee, the baby had hatched only about half an hour before the trip. A couple of the youngsters hit a roadblock as they tried to negotiate a curb before reaching University Avenue, but eventually everyone made it up and across the road. The family had lots of encouragement from onlookers and — as befits such an event — a police escort.
Lucy and her family will take up residence in a pond across the road.
