    This past weekend I caught a ferry out of Cheboygan, MI to Bois Blanc (bob low) Island. It's a nice sized island but pretty low key, other than a small bar and diner there is really no other businesses.
    I rode my bike with trailer to the NW side of the island and pitched my tent. There are no paved roads, so it was a slow, steady ride.
    There are endless rocks for ammo but very few were round but it was still a fun evening shooting.
    When I got back to the marina where the ferry docks the next day, I thought I'd dive in to rinse off and then I saw all 0620210856.jpg 0619211953.jpg 0619212128.jpg 0620211104.jpg the Water snakes on the rocks and decided I really didn't smell that bad after all!!!

    One gentleman told me they were "just water snakes and that they won't bite."
    Huh? They have a mouth don't they???

    No, but I saw a very large fish about 15-20 foot off shore just cruising down the beach. it was too choppy to tell what it was.

    I was swimming in the sea off the coast of Egypt and a snake just came swimming past, just left it be and it carried on swimming past.
