Thank you very much. Woodside is a small rich town for the silicon valley people. It is literally in the woods. This "woody the fish" is a wood sculpture in the town's only shopping center. David

You are right about two things: Yes, Woody the fish is a wooden salmon about 15 ft. long and yes the "no parking" sign is definitely at the wrong place! What I like to point out is that this carving was done in the early 1900's from one piece of California redwood. One hundred year old wood art in the parking lot of a quaint village's only shopping center? That might be common in Europe, but in 21st century high tech silicon valley? David
