Nothing like a little Django on a sunny & breezy Tuesday afternoon.
I have the office and the palapa house (our communal kitchen, bathroom, and living room), and pretty much the whole field station all to myself. Well at least it seems that way, especially after the big hullabaloo that cleared out a little more than a week ago. The field station had its 20th Anniversary two weekends ago, and the place was swarming with folks of all ages, stages, faces, and…Continue

There is a very sweet smell in the air on this early Sunday morning. It is one that does not bring back old memories but will definitely be creating new ones. I feel as though it has something to do with the flowering cactuses and big tides that are following the full moon from a few days ago. I can't help but breathe deep breaths and let the musky and floral fragrance take me over. Like a sip of my favourite tea - it soothes me.
I just transferred from the hammock outside to…Continue

Sam Roberts Band- Collider Everett Album Review
Right out of the gate Sam Roberts Band’s new album Collider’s first track “The Last Crusade” has one of the best grooves I have heard in a long time. The Last Crusade progresses into a stellar sax solo that sets the bar high. This feel continues with “Let It In” that features an almost Franz Ferdinand Take Me Out tempo, and insanely catchy chorus. “Let It In” is a full band song, horns, and wind instruments sounds like it will…Continue

There is a Sonoran Desert Tortoise garden (with a fence) at the station. I’ve only seen them once or twice since I’ve been here, but today was a different story…
Last night they had their swimming pool/water supply filled up so they were out and about this morning. I have been trying to remember to feed the tortoises – they like fruits and veggies. Their favourite is romaine lettuce – which is very hard to come by. It’s hard to remember to feed them because when you look at…Continue

Oh the best weekends always happen unplanned and unexpectedly. They almost always contain a plethora of events. Such happenings are extremely difficult to put into a neat little package that anyone will want to bother to read. Thus I TRY to keep the detailed memories for myself and recount my weekend in a few paragraphs.
Viernes (Friday)– In the afternoon I went out to do some osprey nest exploring. I did not feel up to tromping a kilometer each way across the waist high…Continue

Back to Puerto Lobos…
I skipped out on the snorkeling trip my first morning because I was still getting over my head cold. We did some tide pooling instead which was equally as exciting. HELIASTER!!! On our way back to camp – we were disappointed to find out the hot dog stand wasn’t open yet. Womp womp. The rest of the afternoon was spent swimming, playing guitar, playing crib, and getting some sweet sweet sunshine. We took another trip into town for the evening and explored the…Continue

My good mood from finding lovely and interesting things about ospreys has been stained by the abundance of blue covering my country. Fuck you Mr. Blue.
Mr. Red looks choked, poor guy. The red’s just ain’t what they used to be. Here’s to an orange and green future, where the separatists are no more, and where there is strength in a new and wonderful and happy Canada. The results of tonight upset me as I sit here in tiny town Mexico, staring at the CBC live footage under a hatched palm…Continue
