I'm not really an outdoor person....  I like gardening and I love a summer tan, but the woods and hiking are pretty low on the list.  That said, almost every weekend we go to the pond in the mountains for relaxing and food with friends and family.  

We also go there during the week and take care of the weeds and to cut back the natural growth from the picnic and living area to keep the snakes and wildlife at bay....at least while we are there.  

Check out the tree!  That is a 6 foot black snake crawling up to check out the bird's nest.  Apparently there were no birds or eggs in the nest because once he checked it out, he came back down the tree and eventually slithered away.  Ugh....  So while back at the pond it won't be enough to watch where you are walking, I will also have to look up to make sure there are no snakes in the trees!  

A couple of us voted to kill the snake!  But Mr. Kay (who calls himself the chairman of the board) vetoed that idea and the snake lived to terrorize us again.
