I remember once, taking my wife and daughter to Loch Ness to visit the
"Official" and the "Unofficial" Loch Ness Monster Museum there which
keeps a record of the sightings of Nessy the monster over the years.
10's of thousands of people go there every year...A lot of Americans are
entranced with the idea of such a thing. They even have films and
videos of various sightings and expeditions which went on over the
years. One of the more famous ones was made by a priest from a local
Catholic Monastery, who was also advertising their own brand of Scotch
Whisky as part of the video.
At the time, I was on my own, overlooking the bay, from a seat beside
the hotel, above the castle; as my wife and daughter were purchasing one
of those delicious, Loch Nessy Monster Ice Creams from the local cafe,
when I saw the Loch Ness Monster scooting across the water, with its
famous head and half rings like a giant eel following along behind it.
By the time they got back, it had gone, but I told them about it...and
guess what...they didn't believe me. I also told the curators of the
two museums what I had seen, but they didn't believe me either and
thought I was mad!...I only wished I had had my camera with me...
Still, the ice creams were nice...and my daughter still remembers the
story...but still doesn't believe me. It's worse than trying to prove
the existence of Father Christmas these days...people don't believe in
anything any more...apart from Hollywood...:-)
I blame the internet meself...
