wet river morning

sometime in the night it started raining. i woke up to let the dogs out and HA! my car windows were down....thankfully the sun roof was closed!

we met a friend and his dog Omani at the river and all the dogs enjoyed getting muddy as can be. Omani is a young rescue dog that my friend ended up with. i think he's going to be huge!
















then as i was walking up the bank to the car--angus had already dashed up lightly ahead of me--i saw a sleeping rattlesnake!


my heavier movements woke it up (or was it my audible *GASP*?)--it stood on its coils for me and i heard the first sizzling rattle of the summer. my heart was racing as i jumped away!

needless to say, i took a different route to the parking area--and kept the dogs away--but couldn't resist going back to snap a shot of it from above (this is slightly zoomed, but not that much)!

Oh and I took the quiz - my aura is blue too - funny, I don't feel like Angelina jolie...

It's scary how nicely that snake blends in with the ground . . .
