Still on the Sound: A Seasonal Look at Island Life
Illustrated with more than two hundred of Mike’s own colour photographs, Still on the Sound is warm, funny and irresistible – a love letter to the island.
When Mike Faulkner, his wife Lynn and their two dogs first crossed Ringhaddy Sound to the Blue Cabin on an island in Strangford Lough, they planned to stay for a year. Seven years later, the island's magic hasn't lost its hold . . . With stormy midnight crossings, dramatic sea rescues and the general inconveniences of living in a wooden cabin on an Irish sea lough, life there wouldn't be for everyone, but, for Lynn and Mike, the compensations are manifold and glorious. From the quieter days of winter when a baby seal becomes a much-loved and long-staying guest, to the bright weekends of spring when Strangford Lough becomes the ultimate yachtsman's playground, Still on the Sound celebrates the seasons, the wildlife and the joy of living on an otherwise uninhabited island.
