Athena and I do a walk on the campground nature trail. The trail is about a mile long and has plaques scattered about that describe what we may see along the way. Very nicely done for a camp ground. The plaque she is reading tells about the oranges along the trail, these oranges are very bitter and imported from Vietnam for their oil. There are other plaques telling us about the snakes, one snake is black, climbs trees, and squeezes its prey to death. This snake is not harmful, but a bite from it would be unlikely unless molested, and would only hurt like the devil. The next snake we read about was called the coral snake, this snake bite is a death sentence. The victim will feel a bite, then have no symptoms of any kind, but typically drops dead in an hour or two unless he is given an anti-venom in that time period. (This snake should be made extinct like now!!!) The last snake we read about is a cotton mouth, did not sound deadly to people, but sounded like it would be most unpleasant if bitten by it. Though the walk was pleasant, it did do a lot to reinforce my opinion of snakes, (they make good hat bands!).
Good evening and good night…
