. No idea why such a peaceful looking creature, so camera shy, so good at playing hide and seek with adventurous humans – oh, assuming she exists at all! – would be called a “monster.” Trockle’s a bit sad to think what a bad reputation monsters have, but is happy to do his part in helping children sleep better at night, and is excited at the prospect of traveling with me to Scotland, one day, to search for his distant monster-cousin. Meanwhile, we can explore Loch Ness through the Internet
, thanks to Google Maps
. The iconic photo of the Loch Ness monster, known as the “Surgeon’s Photograph

of the Allegheny Mountains.
Perhaps I have a few cousins in Scotland, as well, on the Ferguson side. I can combine my hunt for the Loch Ness Monster with playing the Bagpipes – also on my #bucketlist – and perhaps pick up a bit of the Ferguson tartan plaid while I’m there. I think I’d like to spend a night in a real castle, while I’m there.
