The sizzling sand
Soon arouses the sleek snake
With its warm caress
Sleeping under the stars is something I rarely do, but if the weather is right up in North West Australia it is really quite possible. I was asleep on a dune by the beach and awoke to find these snake tracks around and about where I was lying in my sleeping bag. I have no idea what snake made them, but I am glad to report they did not make it into the actual sleeping bag.
I continued to sleep outside but with the sleeping bag drawstring pulled in very tight. A colleague discovered a tiger snake under his tent (he was not so brave) soon after, enjoying the warmth generated by my more cautious friend’s body.
