This was our first trip to the river. It was really pretty. It was less pretty when the other river goers next to us said, “just wanted to let you know we saw a rattlesnake in the water a few days ago.” I’m not a snake person. I’m really not a deadly snake person.
I figured my shark theory would hold up…’if there are lots of other people closer to the shark or snake territory, they will get it first.’ So, I’m not as selfless as you thought. Sorry to disappoint! My parents should not have let a seven year old see Jaws.
Fortunately, at least for my nerves, the water couldn’t have been clearer and it was mostly shallow. This was the deepest area except by the rock. Ryan has my blood running through his body…therefore a thorough check had to be done by the guy below to assure him that no snakes were lurking.
