Met a Nice Snake Today

Adventure Location: Decatur, Alabama

It was a little late this morning for the walk start. We did have a nice breeze to go with the warm temperature. The OFM body cooperated very well and only in the last 1/4 mile did we even have any pains and they were small.

The little purple pod flowers were starting to open. This is the start of the really pretty star shape if we recall correctly.



Then on down the trail a nice distance a friendly snake raised its head and hisssed a big texas HOWDY to us. The OFM grabbed for his camera but all we got was the couple of feet long tail of the snake. The OFM guesses it was about 3 1/2 feet long.



As it moved away into the taller grasses we wished it “GOOD HUNTING”. It smiled and silently moved on.

The campground is getting ready for the swarm of noisy drunks that show up during Memorial Day weekend. Our bright hang tag that Sierra has to wear in the campground for the next few days is in place and operational. Every year some folks try to sneak into the park and make trouble.

The grandkids and extended family are headed for a week and a half of beachy playing. We are certain to get some pictures of the antics those folks do for entertainment. That will be nice to view.

There is one thing for sure, those folks sure know how to try to have tooooo much fun at the beach.

  2. How do you know it was a friendly snake? That would have definitively "ruined" the rest of my day. Glad it did not affect yours.

  4. Are you sure the snake didn't "slither" away?
