LochNessPawty – The Loch Ness Monster
Fact or fiction? The truth is that this legend real or not has been around for centuries. One of the first such stories credits St. Columba in 565 with saving the life of a local who was about to be eaten by a monster lurking from the River Ness.
Throughout the years and even in this decade the search for Nessie continues. Many sightings have been reported and the quest does not stop. Nessie has been reported to be as short as 20 feet and as long as 40 feet. Expeditions using modern technology have taken place without sucesss…but all that means is that the beast has not been found…yet. Could the elusive Nessie be a descendant of the ancient plesiasaur?
The fact is that Loch Ness is Scotland’s largest body of fresh water, expanding 22 miles in length. At its widest it is half and mile and 800 feet deep in some areas! The waters are dark and cold, averaging 42 degrees F (7 degrees C), and anything could happen there!
