Oh no, that's just a model of Nessie we found at the Loch Ness visitor center.
Today (Day 8) was the big trip to Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle. Poor Sydney was a little confused. We kept talking about Nessie, the Loch Ness monster, so she kept asking where is was and would she get to see it. After seeing the educational film at the visitor center where they explored all the scientific explanations, (one of them on how if Nessie was a Plesiosaur, there was no way she could exist), Sydney sadly informed Kyla that Nessie died. I guess it cleared some things up for her - she got the gist of the film how a lot of people have searched, but it's never been proven that there ever was a Loch Ness monster.
Urquhart castle was fun to explore - mostly ruins now, but a lot of history which you'll have to google because I'm not a reliable source. What I got was that it was attacked so many times that they finally blew it up and moved out. My last post took forever to format so this time you'll have to click here to see the rest of the Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle Pictures.
