the tallest tree

I can't remember if I've posted about this tree and its story before. The building is right in front of ours and has a killer view of the bay - rumour has it that it's all just vacation rentals or owned by rich people living elsewhere. The tree on top is supposed to be as tall as the original old growth was in this area waaaay back before the Europeans came and cut them all down. Having seen some of the second growth much further north (we still haven't seen any old growth forest yet, though there's some on the island), I could definitely believe it.
