Have you ever made social blunder while on water?

Not really a social blunder, but a hilarious one that had a few witnesses. I was walking along the San Juan river in NM. I was coming around a gradual river bend and walked right next to a tree, and all of the sudden I hear a hiss, turn to my left, and there's a brown snake hanging from a tree right the hell next to my face. We're talking less than a foot away.

So I just flung myself backwards away from it, probably screaming, tumbled backwards down an embankment, and ended up next to the river with my gear strewn everywhere. I hear laughing, pick myself up, brush myself off, and two guys in a driftboat were right there cracking up. They got to see the whole thing.

Turns out it was just a Bull Snake

Not my blunder this time....Many years ago...maybe I was 12 or so? We lived at a VA facility my mom worked at. It had a 9 hole golf course with ponds. One summer day I am out collecting feathers..my brother and I "tied" flies. I came around some bushes on one of the back ponds. There, blanket spread, buck naked, was an old man, going at it. All he had was a cup of yogurt and a banana with him...for a young girl it was quite the shock!! I still don't eat yogurt to this day....

Were the cup of yogurt and banana, uh, participating, or were they just watching?

My most recent blunder was a few years ago when walking back up river at Chinook Bend. A guy and a youngish blond were out on a gravel bar. He with a camera and she with an umbrella, and that is all she was "wearing".

Now this was in October and a bit chilly to say the least and everything displayed was quite "perky" if you get my meaning.

Tipped my hat and commented that it was a tad bit chilly. My last visible image was some really red and flushed cheeks.

A buddy and I, while in high school, decided to float the Nehalem River from Spruce Run park to tidewater, where my parents had a cabin. Lots of adventures there, but as we neared the end, we floated on slow water. As we rounded a bend, we noticed something on the beach. As we silently got closer we realized two folks were making love on the beach. We kept quiet as we drifted by, but as we were within 20 yards, they, er, finished. We broke out in applause. The woman seemed unhappy at that, but the guy stood up, still buck naked, and took a bow.
Thanks for the applause. ;)

Seeing any snake that close on such short notice would put the fear in me. I'd be down that embankment faster then you..
