The west coast has had its first rain fall in 30 days. Perhaps this is partly why I was unable, yes unable to find any slugs or snails for the first 3 weeks of my visit. In fact it was difficult not to feel apocalyptic as I wandered through the woods hearing the crinkling of dead leaves under foot in August. Yes, the sun has been lovely, still...I was happy to run into this little guy the other day. More Vancouver shots here.
