Snakes on a Dock!
Well not technically on the dock...but most assuredly under it. We saw so many water moccasins on this trip that Thomas started parodying the movie "Snakes on a Plane" by saying "Get these mutha fuckin snakes out of their mutha fuckin habitat!" The set up was perfect for a cheap horror flick.
Lake Fairfield is a wildlife bonanza. We saw several bird species and even spied an animal in the water that looked somewhat like an otter. I couldn't tell what it was, but Thomas and Matt were saying nutria. I'll have to look it up and see what I can find out.
We didn't get to hike a full hike today because of my little toe being ground to a pulp by my new hiking boots...yes Sean, you can say I told you so if you wish ;). Another pair bites the dust...I am so disappointed. I thought I had the right shoe this time, but back to the old drawing board. I don't think it will be possible to break in these boots without terrific pain involved. It shouldn't be that way in my opinion. Will I ever find a shoe that's right for me?
