The Joy of Simple Living at Sea (coastal foraging)
Foraging is such a delightful pastime. It’s less about dinner and a lot more about the joy of being in nature. I can come home empty-handed and still be pleased as punch with how I spent my day.
Why? Because foraging isn’t hiking, snorkeling, or wandering aimlessly. Searching for wild food means I have to slow down and look. There is an intimacy to it. I take stock of the world around me in a completely different way. #CultivateCuriosity
The more I know about nature and all the life around me, the more I appreciate it…and the more I want to preserve it. Ya know, nurture nature and it will nurture me.
So join us for a little coastal foraging at Aotea (Great Barrier Island). It’s a catch, cook & play with new tech kinda day. Yes, tech. Because we’re equal part documentarians and explorers.
We have a new drone (accidentally drowned our last one), action camera, and wireless mics!

🙏 THANK YOU!
Ups, downs, and all around, we share it all. If you like what you see, there are lots of ways you can show your support.
I can’t stop watching the sailing shows where are you guys now ? Have you considered or is there a reason you don’t give the date on recording ? We have a beach house at Kiawah’ Island. One day I was looking out across the ocean and Was surfing FB and came across your show of you guys sailing. It’s a pleasure watching you both just be yourself and living life! Take care and hope to see a new show soon
Time for an update on Tonga? I just checked out Dior Sheen’s Instagram post, and if I’m reading it correctly, it sounds like they lost their home. I know there were many others in Tonga that you also interacted with. Tonga is hardly in the news now in the US, and yet they really need help.
You can watch Dior’s videos for updates on them and their home. Communications are still down and so until I have a clear picture of all the islands and the state of all of our friends and what the needs are, we wait. I have asked many times through our sat communications on the island and they say Red Cross is there, help and supplies are coming through and there is nothing we can do for now. Assessments and plans are still being made. I understand the desire for information but these things take time and sometimes there isn’t much we can do immediately.
New patron here. Great video! Does the DJI wireless transmitter mike sync to the Mavic 3? Or is there another receiver? Interested in how you got the aerial shot w sound and no other recording source. Thanks!
The mics are wireless and have their own receiver. We sync the audio after. But the receiver can plug into almost any audio input on any camera.
So jealous of those sharks, they get to hang out in a spectacular part of our world. I think they’re actually safe and sound too. Can’t begin to thank you enough for uploading. It definitely makes my day! 🦋❣️🙏🏻 All my love Georgann
Hello and thank you for another wonderful, unique, special video. The video was pretty clear and crisp although not sure if I noticed any difference between this week and last week. The cockles made me hungry too. They look like baby clams. You did a great job with the filming in the kitchen and the sauce. Sorry about Jasons foot. I don’t think that will take long to heal. Nice to see you smiling, laughing and enjoying yourselves. You both are definitely a bright spot during my day.
You two are In the groove.
Great video, as always. Living off the land – way to go! 🌟👍💖
Another great little video.. You two are amazing I love the way you love life… Will you ever get over to Perth Western Australia.. Love to have a chat and see Curiosity,, Best wishes Gavin
Love you adventures. Puts a smile on my face.
When are you coming over to Australia?
I remember digging for clams in Washington many years ago with you both. What a fun week that was! I had to go back in and watch that sauce recipe. I was with aunt Cindy and Tony and we dug for clams on the beach in Morro Bay last year. That sauce would’ve been great on them!
Can’t wait to see what all that drone can do. It looks pretty amazing!
Another excellent production.Bummer about the cuts. I wear teva all weather sandals since I’ve had those cuts too often. Cheers!
Always nice if you can “live off of the land”, in your case the sea! Mucking around in that muddy shoreline didn’t look like much fun to me, but the child in me probably would have loved it! My late Dad grew up in New England and told us that he and his brothers would go “cohoggin” for clams, and these small cockles looked just like those but in miniature. The folks were sad when they discovered that some of us kids really liked them fried up in butter(lots of butter) and made their portions much smaller because to that. Too bad Jason got cut up but his private nurse looked as though she had it taken care of with her usual bedside manner!
It’s such a comment on living within our means and listening to moderation. It doesn’t take having everything to be happy. Well…except seafood and lots of expensive gadgets :p
Just wondering, why don’t you guys wear water shoes? Cost under $10, and would really protect your feet. ❤️
If you love high tea you should head north to the cold climes of the British Isles.in particular Devon and Cornwall.in the South East of UK. I think k the English invented high tea.
Oh boy was that not only a fun trip but the cockle meal made me mighty hungry! Yum! Aren’t they actually just baby clams? Here in the PNW there’s plenty of clams and oysters among other sea goodies for which I had grown up with. Thoroughly enjoyed your video today- thanks!!
I am surprised that you have not and or do not wear any of the water shoes that are marketed.
Nice article. Pro and Con remarks are exceptional. Thanks for sharing.Be safe.
Oh yeah do you miss the Open road?
This is the secret with you two. You keep it fun and simple. You show real things. What a great way to be. I mean live a life of pleasure and connection with each other. The connection with each other is the secret sauce that makes your life worth living.
Made me hungry. Hope your foot gets better quickly.
