Persistance and struggle....
I enjoy going down to the James River along the Colonial Parkway in the mornings during sunrise. Yesterday, it was breezy, there was quite a bit of cloud cover and things were fairly quiet. I was walking along the river, and came across this little water snake trying to make its way along the bank of the river. Perhaps it didn't want to encounter the sand, so it crawled along the water's edge getting utterly pounded by wave after wave after wave. It was a good show of persistence and struggle and I came to admire this little guy. Eventually he made it to a patch of grass where I'm sure he took a much deserved rest!
