The flowers in this place are pretty awesome. NCW needed one for her hair. It was and continues to be windy, but the windchill is still in the 70's.
An albatross nests a couple of blocks from here. They apparently mate for life and return here every couple of years to lay eggs and raise a family. They are long lived - as much as 60-70 years - and able to fly prodigious distances. The pair takes turns sitting on the egg until it hatches. Larry led us to its lair.
