THE LOCH NESS MONSTER

= = = = = = = = = = = = =
I have lived here beside the Loch Ness since I retired last year. My house
has a good, clear view of the loch. In fact, its only about a hundred metres
from the lake, and there is nothing but the road in between. Now Ive never
been interested in the Loch Ness monster, you understand. Until last
Tuesday, I thought it was just a good story to attract tourists. But Ive had
to change my mind after last Tuesdays experience.
I got up as usual at about 7 and went into my garden. Something attracted
my attention to the loch. There was almost no mist that morning, and I could
see there was something moving quite fast, going north, in the middle of the
loch. It looked like a giant snake, with its head and part of its body above
water. It was about thirty metres long. I rushed into the house to get my
camera, but when I was back it had gone.
I waited and it appeared again, this time nearer the road and my house. I
could see it clearly. I managed to take several photographs of it. They
havent come out very well, unfortunately, but one or two of them show the
creature quite clearly. At one point it swam straight towards me, but then a
lorry passed on the road and perhaps it heard the noise of the engine
because it disappeared again. I reckon the whole incident lasted for about
fifteen minutes, because I looked at my watch the last time I saw it, and it
said a quarter past seven. Ive never seen anything so strange in my life.

FAMOUS MONSTERS

Where are they from?


What do they look like?
What do people feel when they see them?
What do you think of them?
The Loch Ness monster lives in a lake in Scotland. Some people
say they have seen it. Some say it looks like a small dragon
others like a huge snake. People feel scared but nobody knows
if it is dangerous. I think it is just a legend but there are many
photographs of Nessy. I dont think they are real.
