I've got three minutes to post this and make it before midnight. Which isn't an American sentence but maybe it will do.
The albatross did fly - finally. This afternoon when the sea breeze got up. However it was a little too late for a disgruntled cruise ship passenger or two who didn't get to see any of them flying earlier.
Whenever an albatross appears I think of Linda Ronstadt singing Jackson Browne's song - 'Rock Me On The Water' and the lines
'Theres a sea bird above you
Gliding in one place like Jesus in the sky.'
And G. yells out in his booming Santa-Claus voice, "Albatross flying." And we all turn to look out the window at a sight you never tire of.
I managed to get one photo today - which is something of a triumph, as they are notoriously hard to capture in a photo.
I am now way over my sleep time. We have just got back from a concert - the staff of ABM's school performed various items. A raft of talent. Thoroughly enjoyable. I may tell you more about it tomorrow ...
Meanwhile, I have to get to sleep so I am in fine fettle for tomorrow and more tourists.
Oh, and I was kidding before about the American Sentence. I do have one after all: "Don't even think about saying good morning to me or I'll kick you" - which is actually what I imagined a woman thinking as I passed her on my way to the pick-up place this morning. She really needn't have worried. I'm not a morning person either!
