The boys were very gentle with them. They were warming on the rocks near the shore.

Could be a subspecies of brown snake, but also looks very similar to common garter snakes and the many subspecies of garters. Brown snakes are pretty cool, pretty docile, too!

Possibly a snake called a brown snake or De Kays snake (Storeria dekayi)? See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storeria_de... and tell me what you think.
