Welcome to Calf Island.

I arrived on Calf Island last Tuesday. A more detailed post will follow, but after months of waiting and a few weeks of training, I’m finally here. Doing the work I love.

The island itself is shaped like a dog-bone. The northern half is open to the public, and contains the pavillion I’ll be living on for the next 3 months. The southern half is closed to the public. The forest is incredibly dense there, and difficult to navigate. In between the two halves there’s a closed salt marsh and an open sandy beach (see the picture above). Visitors are few and far between, but those that we’ve entertained so far have seemed enthusiastic about what we’re doing here.

All is well.
