16-year-old summer temp hire, said she didn't know what I was talking about. About five minutes later, she ran up to me with that cheese & said, "Is this what you wanted, sir?" I was overwhelmed with the emotion of being a Canadian among Canadians: "These are my people"

Wayne Adams and Catherine King are an unconventional Canadian couple who have forsaken the bustle of city life with their floating fortress that they’ve named “Freedom Cove.” Off the grid and self-sustaining, the pink and green floating home is a welcome respite from the demands of modern life.
Freedom Cove houses wooden structures, green houses and living spaces all interconnected through a wooden pathway.
Located off the coast of Tofino, British Columbia, Freedom Cove was built in 1992. The couple, who have two children, live in the home year round.
During the cold winter months, they collect rainwater for drinking. In the summer ,they collect drinking water from a nearby freshwater waterfall across the bay.
The two have several greenhouses in which the family grows fruit and vegetables year round. Electricity comes to the home through solar panels and photovoltaic energy generators.
Freedom Cove also has a lighthouse, many pots filled with plants and flowers and a collection of art made by its artistic owners.
