Do you like my accent?
Back in June, my friend Seth came to visit. One of the things we did was to walk up a trail, towards the hills north of us. During that walk, we saw about four snakes slithering off the path. I kind of thought that was a lot. Just sayin’.
A few days ago, Laura and I spent some time on the very same trail. We were berry picking. After we were finished picking, and on our way back, I heard one snake and saw another. With this in mind, I’ve decided to declare, “Dares Snakes Up in Dem Dare Hills.”
Of course, she stopped to take pictures of the second snake. It’s only a Common Garter Snake, so I was fairly confident that it wouldn’t strike at her. If it was something else; something akin to that monstrously horrifying snake we had living with us in Florida, my protective instinct would have taken over. Good thing there are no poisonous snakes in Maine. Good freakin’ thing.
Anyway, here’s what Laura was able to capture from this little episode.
