I said in an earlier post that I love Forteana but that I am a born sceptic. I really, really do want someone to find a previously unidentified creature washed up on a remote beach proving once and for all that a sea monster /great sea snake / nessie actually exists. (I am also aware that this is not going to happen).
Until that great, yet unlikely, discovery occurs I will have to content myself with more articles about sea monsters.
This very real ’sea monster’ ensured that the young couple involved never had a romantic evening on the beach again!
