Section Two

It was a normal day for Mr. and Mrs. John Mackay. They were fishing in their brand-new boat. The air was nice and fresh and the water was clear then normal. They could see the calmness in the water as their boat came to a halt.

That baited up their hooks and planed for a nice relaxing day, but to their surprise relaxing wasn’t the word. After a few hours of fishing they decided to have a snack. Mrs. Mackay pulled out a couple of peanut butter sandwiches. As Mr. and Mrs Mackay sat back they could see in the distance something funny. Watching with curious eyes, Mrs. Mackay points to the ripples that were heading closer to their boat.

Mrs. Mackay let out a scream so loud that it made Mr. Mackay throw his sandwich in the water. When all of a sudden the sandwich was gone. Mr. and Mrs. Mackay brought their boat towards land, and called the authorities. This cause the circus to offering a reward of £20,000 to capture this creature that they saw.

Section Two

Dear Diary,

You are not going to believe what I saw yesterday. Well, being a book, I doubt you would understand much, but, moving on. I was over in Dores because I wanted to pick up some milk for supper. Since it wasn't that far, I decided to walk along the beach. I really do love the beach at sunset, it's so pretty. Anyways, as I was walking down I spotted a dark gray mass on it. At first I thought it was some bulk of seaweed that had washed up during a storm or something like that, but as I got closer I realized that it was roughly 6-7.5 meters long! Now, I must confess that I got a bit curious, it is my nature, you know. So, I crept down closer to the beastly thing. It was then that I noticed it had humps and legs! At this point, even I was not going to stay much longer. So, around and turned and ran back to my husband. Unfortunately, when I told him, he didn't believe me and sent me to bed after drinking a large brandy. I guess he was a bit mad that I had dropped the milk...oh well, I'll have him get some tomorrow, and figure out if he'll see anything.

~Mrs. M.F. MacLennan

Part Two
On the 28th of August, just last year, Neil McKenzie and I (Kelly Yeats) decided to have a wonderful and calming vacation at Foyers Bay House. We had travelled all the way from Bridge of Dee and were enjoying ourselves.

At the time we hadn't thought of the lake we were staying by, which happened to be called Loch Shore (or something like that, work with me. lol) We had heard stories from the locals about the myth of the Great Lochness Monster still living under the water, but of course, we didn't believe them. They were only legends.

So at exactley 8:3o am Neil and I sat out on the balcony of our Bay House when we noticed a 'long necked, curved headed' creature in the loch. We must have watched for around 10 minutes before it dissappeared and since then we had become believers of the lochness myth and told our sighting to the other locals.

(wasn't that great, i kno. that's all I could type up. heh, lol)

Section Two

Just this morning, my husband and I witnessed a huge event. We were on holiday in Inverness and had decided to go and look at the lochs nearby. One of them, Loch Ness, which was the biggest in the Great Glen, attracted us particularly. We had just come out of our motor car when we saw some sort of ripple on the surface of the water. I thought, who would go boating on a lake in this kind of fog? They must be mad! I mentioned this to John and so we went nearer to the edge of the lake to help pull the boat in. Suddenly, the fog cleared slightly, revealing an absolutely calm and flat loch! No movement at all! John and I shared a look of disbelief, and as we looked back towards the loch, we saw a great big snake rise up out of the water! It looked like a giant sea serpent but once we had blinked, it was gone. No trace. I still wonder, as I am writing this diary, whether it actually happened or not.

Section Two

Dear Diary,
You would not believe what happened to me! I nearly died today! I was on a romantic boat ride with Jeffery Thomas. You remember him. He's so cute! I was walking past him on day and he called me over and-right back to my story. So anyway, we were on a lovely boat ride in the ocean by the lagoon Blue in Scotland. When suddenly something pushed our boat over and we flipped! For some reason when I surfaced again I couldn't find Jeffery anywhere! It was like he vanished from thin air! And I suddenly saw some bubbles form from underwater 10 feet from me so I thought it might be him. He could have been hurt or something! So I swam under water toward that direction when suddenly I saw a long necked monster staring right at me!!! As I scrambled to swim away my left foot suddenly started to cramp up. When I started to lose conciousness from lack of air and fear, something long and slimy just pushed me out of the water with this strong force! I landed on shore a few feet from Jeffery who was unconcious. A few fishermen caught sight of us and called for help. Jeffery just had a small bump to the forehead. What do you think it could have been that saved our lives? Could it be the Loch...nah. Well, me and Jeffery are going on another date next week but this time we're stay FAR away from water.

SECTION 2

Dear Diary,

Today, I went fishing as usual, and suddenly, I saw this enormous flipper pushing against my boat!
I grabbed my knife and stabbed it, I heard a piercing roar and a head, about the same size as a particularly large rat appeared, it had razor sharp teeth and small eyes which were focused on me, holding the head up was a long neck which must have been longer than my boat, panic took control over me as I sat there on my seat, I was stuck there, I didn't move a muscle, suddenly, it's long tail whipped my boat, I was thrown overboard, I struggled helplessly and the monster swum towards me, "This is the end," I thought, I closed my eyes and silently made a prayer to God as the monster moved noiselessly towards me, I felt something grabbed my leg, I was pulled into the water, by then, I made up my mind that I was going to be eaten alive by this horrible beast, suddenly, the monster let go of my leg and swam away, grabbing the chance, I swum upwards and spotted a boat, I waved my arms frantically, finally, the passengers on the boat spotted me and alerted the captain.
When I finally came onboard, I immediately related to the captain what happened, "You must have a rest, sir," the captain said, "You speak no sense or truth and there's certaintly no monster in this lake," with that, he left me.

Now, diary, I swear that I did see the monster and that it isn't a figment of my imagination, sadly, no one believes me, but one day, they shall, I'm sure of it.

Today we traveled around Scotland on a small boat we had rented for our trip.

It was just as we were crossing around the bend between the marsh and the sand bar when we heard a bit of splashing. We rushed excitedly towards the noise, thinking we were about to see a moose or something.

Then we saw the monster. The tour guide fell of the boat.

It was huge, grey, and unaware of us watching it. It was wading in the water, slowly trudging around.

It was dead silent all around. Then, the tour guide broke though the water, shouting, for he couldn’t swim.

The creature’s head snapped up, catching sight of us, and the tour guide in the water.

He made the most frightening noise, like a bellow/scream.

The tour guide was terrified of the creature and was shouting at us to help him up.

The creature advanced on us. All of us on the boat stared at it in fear.

Finally, some of the men helped the tour guide back onto the boat.

He shouted at us about ‘monster’ and ‘must get out’. I remember him rushing forward to the wheel and trying to motor the boat away from the approaching creature.

He obviously knew what it was, but all he did was shout orders to get us out of the swamp.

We turned around and left the creature behind.

Later, I asked around for more information about the creature. I learned that the creature might of had something to do with the Loch Ness monster tales.

I did some research on the monster, and I am certain that it was indeed a Loch Ness monster that we saw.

The other people that traveled with us don’t believe me, but I am confident that I saw “Nessie”.


Five bonus points will be awarded for a picture of the loch ness monster.
