“Each boat has a wish for one of my brothers and sisters,” she told her friend.
“They are so tiny to have wishes inside,” her friend said quietly, trying not to make too many waves.
“The stars are tiny too but they make wishes come true.”
Her friend nodded in agreement. That seemed to make a lot of sense.
Loch Achilty Sunrise by Iain MacDiarmid Via Flickr: Colour in a small part of the sky and a near perfect reflection just about made up for the lack of foreground and skyline interest and the photo-bombing ducks that kept causing ripples!
Bessie (Lake Erie Cow Monster or Lorain Ocean’s Lake Monster)
Described as looking like a cow and having multiple heads in some sightings (yes you read that correctly). Sightings around Lake Erie started in 1907 and have continued ever since with sometimes basic or stranger description of the creature. One of the weirder descriptions was made by two brothers in 1937 as a creature made up of a hundred cows combined into one with arms.
Two American students once claimed to find the tooth of the Loch Ness Monster during their vacation to Scotland. They found it in a dead deer laying by the shore of the loch. Shortly after taking pictures of it a park ranger passed by and confiscated it. They posted the pictures online later to publicize their claim. The “tooth” was identified by keen eyed viewers as an antler from a roe muntjac deer. It’s said that the story was all a hoax and was actually a publicity stunt to help promote an upcoming book about the Loch Ness Monster.
