A great picture of a nice big spotted leopard slug. Did your wife let you keep it?

Nope. She said that she already had one slug living with her...

I don't remember if the ones on Round Island had the spots, but they were this size. Remember me telling you Lana, that the French in the old days may have eaten these as escargot? The ones on Round Island live in the shadows of the cliff there, for those wanting an excuse to go there.

I remember climbing the cliffs toward the middle of the island.

I also remember jumping off the wee-pee and swimming under that boat. We were only a few feet off shore but there are off-shore underwater cliffs, just like in the water surrounding Mackinac Island
