On the first I was walking with my wife near Rothbury in Northumberland when she almost stood on a snake in the path. We later found out that we had been walking on Adder Hill. I've also seen them basking in the sun on a very quiet road in western Durham while out cycling. Both occasions were pre Alamy, so no decent photos to show. My brother in law and his Mrs were staying at a camp site in Northumberland last year where there were adder warning signs, but they didn't see one. However the concept of adders lurking in the toilet block would be enough to give me nightmares ! There is a golf course in Oklahoma, set among hills, rocks and tall grass/weeds just off the fairways. Signs posted warn of rattlesnakes and warn against going into the rough to find your mis-hit ball. It not uncommon to see a rattlesnake at the tee box. I played the course once only, and hated it. Mainly because one green was like a small volcano with an undulating top with drooping edges. I think I chipped about 4 times, only to see my ball either not make it to the top, or make it to the top but roll off. I got tired of having my ball end up at my feet again. My husband made it up in one try. I didn’t speak to him for at least one other hole, when I redeemed myself by chipping in. One must start with a lot of spare balls, because even rolling or hitting into the rough any farther than one can reach with a club, forget it. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
