New Experiences and Conquering Fears
I made the mistake of 1st sitting in the front row and 2nd telling him I was not fond of snakes. He made sure I was up close and personal with most of them. We did end up, as you can see, holding the last of the show: a 14 ft - 5 year old burmese python. It was very heavy. G is looking at the face of the snake because it kissed her face. I heard her say, "Get it off." I couldn't look though because the snake was so close around my neck and face.
We held baby snakes too. I will post photos later when we are home and all pictures are downloaded. I have a video of G coming to me on the zip line. It isn't a very good video because I couldn't see in the bright light and because at one point I looked up at G and when I looked back at the camera I had almost knocked her out of the frame. But at least we have it.
So now off to supper and will post more later.
