INCREDIBLE: This Couple have spent 25 YEARS on a floating compound where they use solar energy, grow their own food and only make trips ashore every two weeks

Artists Catherine King and Wayne Adams, left, have spent 25 years living on a self-sufficient floating compound, main, that they aptly named Freedom Cove off Canada’s Vancouver Island. They grow their own food – Wayne installed a gravity-fed water system so they can garden and be self-sufficient – they rely on solar energy and generators, welcome curious visitors and draw inspiration for their art from nature. Wayne sources food by fishing local waters – and can even fish through a hole in the floor (top right) which he never actually does because he doesn’t want to disturb the schools of fish living under their property – and the couple say they are living their dream of sustainable living in nature.
