To Canada and Back (part 2, around Grindstone Island)

While on Grindstone Island, the main mode of transportation is by ATV. We were very fortunate that there were enough ATV’s (and one golf cart) to carry our crew of  ten, everywhere we wished to go. Entomologist was my chauffeur, for a good part of […]

Montag… (that’s German for Monday)
