Swimming with snakes
It was a perfect summer’s day: blazing sun and nothing to do all day long but enjoy the moment.
Anklebiter #1 and her friend, the dog and I drove out in the blazing sun to our ‘secret’ beach, where dogs can swim with their small friends.
Three splashes, a happy bark and laughter.
Which then turned to hysterical screaming from my daughter’s friend.
“Snake!” came the cry.
And yes – there was a snake swimming along next to the dog and kids.
The friend kept on screaming. The snake dived under the water and disappeared.
I think the poor thing was terrified.
