A few hours later and I was on the In­ter­is­lander back home. There are cer­tainly some cool is­lands up north, and I look for­ward to go­ing back again.

My team mate from Mac­quarie Is­land, An­gela New­port came down from the Bay of Is­lands for a visit and we had a great week at Tui [ Na­ture Re­serve]. We col­lected some mus­sels for din­ner one day and in­di­vid­u­ally flavoured and smoked them, set them out­side briefly – be­fore Ange’s labrador, Tay­lor, ate them all.

We took a trip to town and bought three chick­ens and a do­mes­tic rat. I’m hop­ing the rat will help me fig­ure out ways to de­sign bet­ter track­ing tun­nels for wild ro­dents. The pri­or­i­ties Sounds’ teens have are clearly clearly a bit dif­fer­ent.
