During July 2018, I was fortunate to visit Grimsey Island, Iceland and experience 2 weeks of total immersion experiencing the life of the Atlantic Puffin. Puffins are captivatingly beautiful and powerful birds capable of flying nearly 60 mph. They spend most of the year at sea but return to land during the summer months to breed and raise their young. During their nesting season, they continually gather fish and sand eels to feed their developing offspring. These magnificent creatures are quiet, docile, and trusting; all endearing qualities that make them charming and irresistible. Thousand of nesting Puffins and the solitude of being isolated on the island made me feel like part of an ancient cycle of life.
