As we look around at the world, right smack dab in the middle of 2021, it has become rather obvious that the coronavirus pandemic is fading…and fast.
There are crowds gathering in bars and restaurants again, awkwardly trying to break the ice with the attractive individual in the seat adjacent to them, hoping to remember what it feels like to interact in such a setting.
Fans in the stands are high-fiving one another at baseball games, and spilling beers in soccer stadiums around the globe.
Even the mythical creatures have discontinued their social distancing.
For the first time this year, the legendary monster of Loch Ness may have been spotted by someone who was actually at the iconic location in Scotland. The on-site sighting is said to have been made by an unnamed man from England who was visiting the area last Wednesday afternoon. While stationed onshore near the site’s famed Urquhart Castle, the witness looked out lat Loch Ness with a pair of binoculars and noticed something strange briefly emerge from the water.
According to the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register, which received the report, the man “said a hump came up, going against the waves, looking like a turtle’s back.” Despite only seeing the oddity for a mere two seconds, the witness observed that it was “black in color with a green tinge to it.” Alas, the only additional details from the potential Nessie sighting are that “the weather was warm and sunny with excellent visibility” and, unfortunately, the witness was unable to photograph or capture video of the oddity due to the incredibly short duration of the sighting.
This was the first time this year that a visitor to the loch reported a sighting of the legendary sea serpent, but the 7th sighting overall after a half dozen viewers of the official Loch Ness webcam captured what they believed to be images of “Nessie”.
