“Wow! Do monsters live in that lake Dad?” “Monsters don’t live in lakes.” “They do!” stated Doulton, defiantly. “What about the Loch Ness Monster? I’ve seen hundreds of photos, so I know it’s true!” The enormous lake glistened and shimmered like a mirror.  “Look at that mountain over there, boys. If you stare at the ridge, it looks like a huge man relaxing on his back.
