Dear Lucy,

Saw my first Water Moccasin snake today. WOW.

Donna gave me ample warning about what they look like, and she had spread a bunch of moth-balls around the front door as she thought they kept the snakes away.

This one she ran across as she was walking from the house to her mother's house across the yard. Donna's eyes were as big as saucers as she came running into the house to tell me she had spotted another snake.

So I, being a silly tourist had to grab my camera and get a picture of the thing.

It's not the heat, or the humidity or even the mosquitoes that I am having trouble adjusting to, it's the creepy-crawlies that can kill me that are a bit freaky.

Here's the picture of him...ain't he cute?
