I....am...Canadian!

I spent part of Thanksgiving weekend in Gibsons, home of that iconic Canadian TV program, The Beachcombers:


There was music, merriment, a lot of food, soaking in a hot tub, and rain. Lots of rain. Which brings out the natives:

Banana slugs! What fun! I am so glad I didn't step on it! Here it is, next to my foot for scale:

Also, there was Guerrilla Produce Art:

And last but certainly not least, an unexpected break in the weather:
Happy Thanksgiving!

I thought it was a squash! Dude, here in Texas, only our MOSQUITOES are that big.

Good you were wearing your boots. In Texas, we wear boots, too, but they are a might pointier in case we have to smoosh something in a corner.
