Motorcycle home and a GIANT BLACK SNAKE

We woke up to the sound of waves crashing on the beach, seemingly right outside our tent flap. The rain and stormy weather had stirred up the lake even more than before. It made for quite the pleasant wake up call. Everyone but Bonnie had already gotten up and were eating breakfast. More fruit plates and sticky buns. Mmmm. Heather made the fruit trays today, but I've gotta say, definitely not as attractive as mine were. The rest of the time was spent cleaning up and drinking coffee while the rain continued to come down in a gentle sprinkle. Everybody left at exactly noon, but I chose to stick around and wait until the rain stopped. I could get home before 8 or 9 if I left at 2 p.m. so I wasn't worried. I ended up leaving the campsite at 1 p.m. and stopped to eat leftovers at a picnic area at a place called Salmon River. I went to go pee in the bushes, and in my typical fashion, was not paying attention to where I was placing my feet. Suddenly, out of the corner of my eye, a GIANT BLACK SNAKE violently wriggles and jumps away, at right about exactly the spot, I was going to choose to relieve myself. Hahaha. My heart pounding and fingers shaking, I walked as far away as possible, and peed somewhere else. I picked an alternate, and faster route to get home on Hwy 7 and the 417, so I ended up home at about 7:30, and everything was great.
