The Copperhead Snake is a difficult one to see in many conditions. They do not have a rattle and often provide no warning of their presence. Multiple times I realized a Copperhead was near by due to a very distinct cucumber smell.
There is a Copperhead Snake in both of the images below.

We often do not get too excited by gulls. This one is a Ross Gull that flew over 9000 miles, from Siberia, and ended up in Pillar Point Harbor, California. This was the second gull of this breed to ever be spotted in California. Unfortunately for the gull, a little while later, two Peregrine Falcons had it for lunch. The wonders of nature!

Cool Places is a new website from the creators of Rough Guides and Cool Camping,
suggesting the best places to stay, eat, drink and shop in Britain (coolplaces.co.uk)
We really thought this was worth sharing. The tent has a super comfy round bed and a wood burning stove. Certainly would be safer to be tenting in the air than on the ground.
