I guess with the water coming up or maybe just location had encounters with 2 rattlesnakes this past week. 2 HBs parked about 25 yrds apart my son was walking from one to the other about 10 pm at waters edge and thankfully heard the buzz. then the 30"- 9 rattles snake took off in front of him along the waters edge went up and over the gang plank of the HB everybody was in went into the water tried to get up on the HB, failing went back to the shore at that time vital statistics were taken. another 18"-3 rattles was surveyed just above the HBs the next day. Be carful we are in their domain and they are only trying to stay out of our way, but at night in the front yard on LP can test your health and health insurance limits. Camped on the south side of BF at the peninsula between BF and HC bays. watch were you put your feet and hands, pets on a leash.
