Georgian Bay Watersnake #Inktober

I was happily swimming off a Killbear Provincial Park rock this August when a friendly camper lady said, “Um, hey, you might want to know that there is a snake in the water.”

Ya, I think I would like to know that. And upon hearing that, I scrambled ever so ungracefully out of the lake and safely onto dry land. I was told that the snake in question was a small fox snake and that it wouldn’t hurt me and that it was probably more scared than I was. I doubt that.

So the other morning I was lying in bed, not quick to get up…but I had to get up, so I just pictured me in the lake with a watersnake swimming towards me. And that was it, I was out of bed.

And so of course that morning’s drawing was of my version of a watersnake. Happy #Inktober!
