While we were in Scotland, we drove past Loch Ness on the way to the Isle of Skye. We stopped and scanned the loch for monsters, but had no success. Unlike “see the Northern Lights”, I did feel like I could cross “search Loch Ness for monsters” off my bucket list. I hadn’t really expected to see any.
So imagine my surprise the next day when we were walking through the islands in the Ness River when we came across the monster! And it was very friendly, allowing us to sit on it for photos. My husband added to it, giving it feather ears. It was a delightful surprise, partly because it was a surprise.
If you’re ever in the area, I recommend searching for it yourself.
