After a few days of no telecommunications and internet access, I’ve finally made it back to civilization. However, I couldn’t have been happier in the internet wilds. The main reasons were that I was camping with my love and that I got to see some of my favourite birds, the Apostlebirds (Struthidea cinerea). Read more

David Cox and Sally Davies escape the rat race of Vancouver and corporate careers for life on a remote island in British Columbia, Canada. Think of it as a mid-life crisis or perhaps even an epiphany. There isn’t much that Dave can’t learn from a book or the internet, or through trial and error.

I stayed home (with flu), and sent my little ducklings off with their dad on a great adventure. Read more
