Episode 2: Freedom Cove, Canada

Summary

Ben meets Wayne and Catherine, a couple who have made their home on a floating island they built themselves, which sits in the aptly named Freedom Cove on Canada's west coast.

Review

Rating: 4 out of 5.

You won't see a more picturesque horizon than the one Ben drifts into at the start of this, one of the series' best episodes: an azure mirror of sea crowned with pine-carpeted mountains. Arty couple Catherine and Wayne live in a floating, pink and blue wonderland off Canada's west coast, an environment they share with seals, eagles, bears and... chihuahuas. Ben struggles to keep his jaw off the floor as he explores their living art installation that's more Grand Designs than subsistence living.

The pair's creativity, in both artistic and practical senses, is breathtaking. Ben encapsulates their relationship nicely: "They've found their freedom at the end of the world," he sighs.
