Have always been mildly interested in coconuts in the northern 
hemisphere ever since I flew a Grumman Widgeon into a small Bahama 
Island I was interested in buying---one time quite a palatial residence 
with automatic diesel generator.  Unfortunately the salt air got to the 
rebar in the house walls and the resultant rust swelled and cracked all 
the concrete. 

The island had a huge coconut palm grove---only one I ever saw in the 
Bahamas.  You see the occasional coconut palm where a coconut has 
drifted ashore and taken root, but not a grove.
