was cut short, I've been wanting to go back out and actually go around the island at my own pace.
So today, despite a steady breeze and some significant chop, I went out and circled the island. I even tried to check in on Facebook, but despite the fact that I had adequate reception on my phone, Facebook didn't have Falkner as a place I could check in, and it wouldn't let me add it. Oh well.
The terns have mostly moved on. I only saw one, and he was no longer in breeding plumage. Aside from a handful of cormorants, the island was totally quiet.
I know that it's probably not that amazing to anybody else, but I still admire whoever thought up an external clapper powered by the movement of the ocean.
