STL DPB On The Road: In The Redwood Forest

A volunteer dresses as a giant banana slug (for reasons best known to herself) in Henry Cowell State Redwood Park near Felton, California. We spent the weekend visiting my wife's cousin and her husband in Los Gatos, CA, on the edge of Silicon Valley south of San Francisco. They are retired and volunteer as docents in the park. Oh, and why the faux slug is holding a small stuffed penguin was never explained to me. Who would win a fight between a penguin and a banana slug?

Home tonight.

If you were to dress up as a slimy forest floor creature, what would it be?

I'm a wood nymph, I have no interest in dressing like a slug!

The first thing I thought of was Totoro, who I adore. I'm not too wild about the idea of being a slug, although I hear people like to keep them for pets.

I'll skip the slimy bit...
