Marsh Snake??

I think I *may* have identified the snake. If I’m right, then it was probably an adult and “venomous not regarded as dangerous”.

It’s the right size, colour, location, etc & it had those white stripes near its mouth.

Thanks to Lorri (& here) who got me started in the right direction.

I had a lovely beach walk this morning, something I don’t do enough of. I was on the hunt for something to use as inspiration in an art project. I don’t know if I found it or not but I did come home with some lovely things.

Some pieces of sea glass for my (little) collection. Not easy to find around here.
A couple of feathers, some lovely shell-encrusted rocks, a great piece of sponge and, the best of all, a dried sea horse.
