Tails From The Everglades

Paddling along the west side of the Florida peninsula we veer left at the southern curve keeping the open water to our right. Eventually we reach a beach. Not a beach in the traditional sense, but rather a clearing of mud and mangrove roots. I get out in the shallow water and pull the boat ashore when a brown snake slithers out of an unseen hole. I jump, but the foot long, inch wide snake slides away from me and in to the water swimming away, reminding it is not just the alligators you should be wary of.
