The water levels at the lake are still really low, so we've been taking advantage of it by walking the shoreline as much as possible.
During summer pool the water would be to the top of those piers....
This guy may have been sunning himself or he may have been dead.... I'm not sure but I wasn't going to poke him and find out.
Would you have poked him?
I would probably have tossed a pebble at him from a distance!! Not hard, just enough to maybe stir him up a bit!! Have you gotten your lake house ready for the summer? I'm not sure we will ever have a summer here! Was at our daughter's up in Blacksburg VA this weekend and woke up to more snow!!! I'm so over it!!!!ReplyDelete
Oh no, not more snow!! I think we're all ready for spring.Delete
Are you kidding? I would have walked briskly in the opposite direction!ReplyDelete
Yeah, he was a big one and even I didn't want to mess with him.Delete
No never poke the snake. I would think the lake would be to capacity with all the snow you have.ReplyDelete
Hi Elaine: This lake is in Kentucky, not near Chicago where we've had all the snow. Every year they drain the lake down to a low level and then fill it back up each spring. xoDelete
We have a lake here in Oregon that is always lowered in winter months. Interesting to see what's under all that water. Yes, I would have let that snake be. No need inviting trouble!ReplyDelete
I agree. Plus I didn't really know if he was poisonous or not.Delete
Absolutely NO to poking the snake. no no noReplyDelete
Never poke a snake. :-)Delete
Wow that really is low. Is there a snow pack nearby to fill it up come spring and summer?ReplyDelete
I vote that all bloggers have to put a snake photo warning at the top of their posts so I don't throw my coffee across the rooms when scrolling down. Shudder.
:-) A "no snake" warning?Delete
The lake is part of a river that flows thru several states and they fill it back up every year after the spring rains.
Poke the snake??? I would be headed the other way so fast I'd be a blur! So did you poke the snake???ReplyDelete
No, I let him be. I thought he might be poisonous.Delete
