Curious Minds Want to Know


We found another area at Metro Park for the boys to explore, and in this place they could walk right out into the water, which they went wading and exploring.


They spotted the water snake, and decided to follow it! They were pretty brave I thought, because I would have gone right out of there. However, they are boys, and their curiosity is high.


The water snake is a nonpoisonous one, and was just a baby. I urged them to get out of the water, but they diverted their attention to some other things after that. They went on looking for shell fishes and no long interested in the snake.

  1. Love it. I would have tried to get my boy away from the snake too, nonpoisonous or not!

  2. It's wonderful that the boys could actually watch the snake and learn first-hand how it navigates and how it looks. No teacher could devise a better lesson plan!

  4. A snake! Rule of thumb, don't follow snakes! Run the other way. My dudes never listen to my thumb's rules either. Looks like a fun way for little boys to spend a day!

  8. It's great that there are so many outdoor adventure spots near where you live. The boys are fortunate to have them. It makes childhood more interesting and exciting.

  11. The boys are way braver than I would be. Although sometimes I can be fairly brave if I see something that might make a good photo.

    Nice shots of the boys exploring.

  12. You're right, Icy, I'd have been out of that water in record time...first of all, I'd have figured there would have been giant momma and poppa snakes slithering around nearby. I just HATE snakes. Growing up in GA, we lived on the border with AL, separated by the Chattahoochee River. We'd often play on the river banks but there were always many poisonous water moccasins around so we never went in the water.

  14. The point and shoot is the only camera I have, unless I want to use film, and that gets expensive...

  18. I enjoyed the pics. I would have been reallyscare of seeing a snake. My uncle used to have one when he was younger, but I wouldn't go near it. If he had it, I would have ran into the opposite direction. LOL!

  19. Curiosity is the best way to learn. I have to admit I probably would have followed the snake too.
