Yes, I’ve been fortunate beyond my wildest dreams and am well aware that it would be churlish to ask for more. Be that as it may, I still wish that I saw that brown snake so many people talked about ... While dragons were solving the world's problems and walking with father-in-law at the Maroubra Beach a large large Bown Snake was spotted having a great time terrorising local wild walkers this morning while Malchkeon was asleep ;-) The Daily Terror only has images of the friendly black and red creatures:
Mr Scott also said he was impressed that the snake knew where to swim.
"It was doing the right thing and swimming between the flags," he said.

A beach on Sydney’s south coast has been closed off after a beached whale attracted sharks to the area.
Herald Sun photographer Alex Coppel captured a series of images of the whale — thought to be a juvenile humpback — while on holiday at South Broulee beach, south of Batemans Bay.
