St Columba and the Loch Ness Monster

A myth submitted to the site by Billi Detheridge

Loch Ness Monster

One thousand, five hundred years ago a holy man was touring river nesa teaching picts about god his name was St Columba. St Columba saw a boat and told one of his followers to get the boat “go and get that boat”
“no” Said the follower
“because once a man went swimming in there and got eaten by a monster there”
“go and get the boat god wants you to”
“fine if god wants me too”
So the man took his clothes of except his tunic the monster was wating for him to jump in. He jumped in and the monster jumped out with a big roar.

The monster had jaggy teeth. They were yellow and looked like spears, its body had red on the top and white on the bottom and black horns and his eyes wear glomy cats that glows in the dark. Its body looks like a snake and move like one but it has flippers and has loads of seaweed on it and smells of fish and cats poo.

St Columba saw the monster going for him and he made a cross in the air and said “go no further. Ne’er touch the man go back with all speed” and the monster went back home with all speed.

I believe the story of saint columba and the water beast, there are many stories of unidentified creatures all over the world including my part of the country in north west saskatchewan canada we have many deep lakes in my part of the country and people have sighted strange creatures in those lakes i myself had a few experiances while out boating.

I didn't really enjoy reading this I think it needs more detail and it is quite short for the story of colmcille and the loch ness monster.
