This morning Dieter tried to catch something, when suddenly he came to our door and told me that he just had realized that this snake was laying not more than 3 feet away from him, hidden in the grass at the water's edge. I grabbed my camera and went back with him. While we were stretching our necks in a respectful distance from it, it slid into a rock formation.
Copperheads are one of the most feared and most dangerous snakes in the entire USA, next to Western Diamondback Rattlesnakes, which we encountered in Deming, NM, in 2010...
Dieter had just played his lucky card today.
I reviewed this place on Google Plus with the following:

My husband and I stay in this park for the third time. The emphasis is on "park" rather than RV Park. The layout of this place, the plants, trees and bushes are nourishment for the soul. The Turtle Bayou cradles this place and gives it a flair which we love. We wish we could stay here for a long time. Never mind the Interstate 10 so near by. Most of the Park is lower than the highway, the noise is not prominent. The blooming Oleander ( or are those Myrtles?) are an attraction for many colorful birds, we were greeted today by a fire-red Cardinal with a wonderful song.Those high bushes also provide enough privacy for campers. This place is very clean and inviting. The Manager is super-friendly and she even remembered us. We were parked here 2005 and 2006. She loved our German accent...We were guided into our lot and were given helpful hints how best to park. Thank you! This is a place we will always remember. We are full-time campers since 2000 and parked in about 370 places so far....
