It was probably just a Northern Water Snake

For those you who padddled a section of the Charles with RICKA today the snake we saw is probably a Northern Water Snake (see utube video). The are common in MA, non-venomous, generally curious, and will bite if disturbed. Also multiple articles state that, despite persistent rumors, there are no water mocasins in MA waters.
Mike, Can you compare the video/pics you took and advise if you concur.
