I don't think so.....i don't believe you get cottonmouths up there Tink. It was a pinkish brown and my friends did say it was one. It was swimming along the shore line and when i ran for my camera it swam into some rocks under the dock.

BILL AND BARBARA WELCOME YOU
Well, I'm no snake expert, but I've not ever heard of a copperhead in the water.
And yepper, there are loads of water moccassins in SC, NC, Georgia, FL, Louisiana, Mississippi, and so on.
A woman I used to know used to terrorize me with stories about them, and she was from SC.
see i thought water moccasins were dark in colour, we used to see them in our friends back yard as they were on the river. Used to find the babies in her pool filter.
However........i reckon now it was a baby cotton mouth (they are reddish in colour) - Jon said it quite small although it never seems like that when it's swimming at you ( i could have sworn it was 6 ft long ) I've sent an email to my friend to see if they ever saw it again and if they have a photo.
I think you are beyond brave for even getting in the water where there are known snakes that also go in the water! And poisonous ones to boot!
Cottonmouths are more dark than not, but rather a brownish, not black? The key feature is of course, that horrifying viper head and the white inside their mouths (hence, cottonmouth). Like I'm going to be close enough to see it's MOUTH OPEN!
Here are pictures of each. The copperhead and the water moccasin.

WARN ME!!!!! AIUUUUUGUGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!
I'm so not going to make it through this morning.
Only time I ever saw a snake in Florida was at Typhoon Lagoon - just a little harmless one but it drew quite a crowd ;)
I think the only bugs we ever see in villas are cockroaches - ugh nasty things. One year we had a 3bed 2bath villa for the two of us and one morning we found this ginormous cockroach in the ensuite. We dashed in and rescued all the toiletries, put a towel at the bottom of the door so it couldn't escape and then moved into the family bathroom for the last couple of days of our trip
