My husband and I live and farm a remote and isolated group of islands in the Falkland Islands. We use a 36 foot steel fishing boat to move between islands. Our lifestyle is pretty much self sufficient. We have a wind turbine for power our own veg gardens and 5,000 sheep that we farm for fine wool and fat lamb.

Surprising what you find on the beach (apparently it is a buoy that sits on top of an oil pipe to keep it afloat).
Left for Stanley at 1:30, beautiful day, no wind. 40 minutes across to Flores Harbour, 40 minutes overland to the end of the road. Track is really dry. Then along the road to Goose Green. Stopped in at Goose Green to go to the Galley Cafe as we hadn't eaten before we left. Its never shut, 9am to 9pm but it was today. Dropped of the second dog pup as his new owner lives at Goose Green. Got into Stanley at 7pm, sorted the dogs out, got changed and went to Shorties Diner for supper.
