Heron Rocks is a unique piece of land holding an oasis of oak, fir and arbutus. Underneath there lies in spring a carpet of blue camus dotted with yellow buttercup by the shores of sandstone rock with sealion and seal swooping by in grey southeastly seas or dark blue northwesterly waters. Gulls, shorebirds of so many species alight these shores. And too H.B. and Hilary alighted by rowboat these shores so many years ago. They became the stewards enchanted by the beauty of this place.
